Pakistan Army on Sunday condemned the firing incidents at the residence of Justice Ijazul Ahsan, according to a statement by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).
Two separate firing incidents were reported at the residence of Supreme Court Justice Ijazul Ahsan earlier today.
“Firing incident at the residence of Mr Justice Ijaz ul Ahsan is condemnable,” said the military’s media wing.
“All stakeholders should ensure [a] secure environment for [the] effective functioning of the state institutions and continue the efforts to consolidate improving peace and stability.”
A statement by the apex court had revealed that the judge’s Model Town residence was struck by bullets first late last night and then again early morning today.
The judge’s house is located very close to the residence of the Punjab chief minister and his son MNA Hamza Shehbaz, where there is visible police presence throughout the day.
