LHC suspends lawyer’s sentence who attacked civil judge

The Lahore High Court (LHC) has suspended the sentence of a lawyer who smashed a civil judge with a chair.

A two-member LHC bench headed by Justice Mazahir Ali Naqvi ordered to release the accused.

Rejecting the Anti Terrorism Court’s decision, the LHC suspended his sentence against surety bondsworth Rs2 lac.

An Anti Terrorism Court in Faisalabad sentenced a lawyer to 18 years and six months in jail for smashing a civil judge with a chair.

Besides the imprisonment, the ATC also fined him with Rs250,000.
