What happened:

Activist and lawyer, Jibran Nasir posted an important update on Apr 21 that powers were filed by lawyers of multiple accused in the Nazim Jokhio murder case, “Objections were filed in name of Shireen Jokhio opposing NHCR’s involvement,” Nasir disclosed.

Details:

The lawyer says that this is ‘extremely important’ as the PPP government uptil now has maintained that Nazim’s family doesn’t want to pursue the case anymore, “Then how come she is able to engage lawyer and pursue case to counter NHCR application?” added Nasir.

What’s next:

The case has been adjourned till Apr 29 where NHCR will present its arguments and ATC will decide on the approval of the current challan.

What you need to know:

According to Nasir, the objections filed against NHCR would’ve made sense if it were filed by the prosecution or the defense counsel team but it came from Nazim Jokhio’s family instead, “Victims are being used to defend the accused.”
