Pervaiz Elahi

ISLAMABAD, Oct 05 (APP): The Supreme Court on Thursday adjourned hearing till indefinite time in a petition against the arrest of former chief minister Punjab Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi.

During the course of proceeding, the court remarked that where had been written in the law that an accused shouldn’t be arrested in any case.

A court in Islamabad had issued such order that the accused would be arrested with its approval, it noted and remarked whether the courts were giving license to the accused for crimes.

Justice Tariq remarked that the judges had taken oath for the protection of law. He asked if the police first sought permission before the arrest of any accused.
