LAHORE: The Lahore High Court registrar Sohail Nasir was transferred on Friday.

High court officials told The Express Tribune that the chief justice had issued the orders after several lower court judges complained against Nasir and allegations of irregularities were reported by the media.

A member of the inspection team Abdul Sattar has been given the additional charge as registrar for the time being.

The LHC administration has sent a summary to the Punjab government, asking that Nasir be appointed as presiding officer at the Rawalpindi consumer court.

Nasir was appointed as the Lahore High Court registrar in May 2011.

Controversy followed soon after. He was accused of getting two official residences allotted – one in Rawalpidi and the other in Lahore – in violation of rules.

A few months later Justice Farooq Ahmad Sheikh, a former judge of the high court and inspection judge for judicial officers in Faisalabad, had written a letter to the LHC administration, complaining that the registrar had not sent him the Performance Evaluation Reports of the 70 judicial officers for countersigning.

Justice Sheikh said Nasir had sent him PERs for only 26 judicial officers and got the rest signed by another judge of the LHC in violation of rules.

Justice Sheikh had requested the then high court chief justice to take notice of the issue.
