After Mr. Arsalan Iftikhar fiasco, overlooking the doings of judges and their kith and kin has formally become a new norm at all levels of judiciary. To illustrate the establishment of such a norm it is pertinent to mention the case of one District and Sessions Judge D. I. Khan Mohammad Rauf Khan.

Mr. Mohammad Rauf Khan, District and Sessions Judge D. I. Khan while acting as Registrar Peshawar High Court D. I. Khan bench misused the power of his office and influenced the District Police Officer Karak to lodge a fake FIR against his real uncle Mr. Reayat Khan. The purpose of filing a fake FIR was to force his real uncle to settle his property dispute His uncle Mr. Reayat Khan filed a complaint against Mr. Mohammad Rauf Khan before Registrar Peshawar High Court. The High Court conducted an inquiry in the absence of material witnesses and electronic evidence proving beyond any shadow of doubt that he had been personally approaching the Investigation Officers to prepare the report in order to implicate his real uncle and cousins'.

The Peshawar High Court in its inquiry declared one of the witnesses as dead when he is still alive. The matter was taken to media but the Chief Justice Peshawar High Court Mr. Ejaz Afzal Khan countersigned the findings of the inquiry report and exonerated the said judge. The Real uncle of the said District and Sessions Judge D. I. Khan filed an application in the Human Rights Cell of the Supreme Court. The said Judge is so influential that the lower staff in the Supreme Court do not put the application before the Chief Justice for proper inquiry. The Complainant was not summoned a single time to explain his position but the petition would be disposed off without hearing. Numerous times "Letter to the Editor" were written but the media groups would never publish such appeal for justice to the Chief Justice of Pakistan. To add humiliation to the miseries of the Complainant, Mr. Justice Dost Mohammad Khan promoted him as District and Sessions Judge superseding the senior judges and without availability of any posts.

The Said District and Sessions Judge D.I. Khan personally moves around in lower District Court, Civil Judge, Moharrar, and Steno to temper the judicial record and documents and approached the whole District Karak Judiciary to influence the outcome of the civil and criminal proceedings in the Court. The Media, The District Judiciary, The Peshawar High Court, the staff of the Human Rights Cell, Supreme Court of Pakistan are blindly supporting the said District and Sessions Judge.

I therefore humbly request Mr. Nasir Ul Mulk, the Chief Justice of Pakistan to take personal notice of the misdoings of the said District and Sessions Judge and remove the menace of corruption and illegalities in Judiciary.
