Chief Justice bans sale of mineral water from 24 companies

Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar on Thursday banned at least 24 companies from selling mineral water.
The CJP remarked that companies’ lawyers receive a hefty amount of fee but this does not give them the right to take relief.
He maintained that the companies should be cognizant of not selling filthy water.
“The companies are big but the water is not clean. They will not be allowed to sell water till the satisfaction of court,” directed the CJP.
The lawyer argued that the court summon the report of Pakistan Standards and Quality Control Authority (PSQCA) in this regard, to which the CJP responded, “We will send for the report by ourselves. The companies should not remain in the illusion that they will get relief wile hiring a prominent lawyer.”
The court adjourned hearing of the case till an indefinite period.
