It seems a very deliberate plan is under way to implicate lawyers and tarnish their image in the eyes of the public. The embarrassing way Sher Afghan was thrashed in Lahore a few days back could not only be the mastermind of a conspirator trying to make use of the strategic location. Just recently Sher Afghan has come forth claiming that the lawyers were in turn responsible for protecting him and the FIR lodged by the Police is mostly a fabrication where over 44 lawyers have been implicated in the incident
Sher Afghan’s lawyers have categorically stated that Sher Afghan believes the lawyers including SCBA president Aitzaz saved his life when the mob attacked him
Noor Muhammad Awan, counsel for Dr Sher Afgan Niazi, has declared an FIR registered by the police against 44 lawyers on charges of attack on Dr Sher Afgan fake and baseless.
Noor Muhammad Awan advocate said this at an emergent press conference held here at the Punjab Bar Council in the presence of a large number of lawyers. It is pertinent to mention here that Dr Sher Afgan Niazi had visited the office of Noor Muhammad Advocate when unidentified lawyers allegedly attacked him on April 8 and later Aitzaz along with office-bearers of SCBA and LHCBA came to his rescue.
Noor said Dr Sher Afgan did not want to register any FIR against lawyers because lawyers including SCBA president Aitzaz saved his life when the mob attacked him. He added that the FIR was baseless and against facts, because lawyers did not attack the former federal minister.
“Dr Sher Afgan Niazi did not want to get any FIR registered against lawyers and police on its own registered the FIR,” he said. According to the FIR lawyers were holding sticks and clubs for attacking the former federal minister but it was not true, he said.
