On Friday, Peshawar High Court (PHC) Chief Justice Waqar Ahmed Seth said that he is unaware of the controversy that is stirred after the detailed special court verdict in the high treason case against the former president General Musharraf released yesterday (Thursday) as he only watched wrestling.
According to Pakistan Today, Justice Waqar made these remarks during a hearing on Friday.
He made these remarks when a lawyer praised him of being confident despite the ‘tough circumstances’.
Replying to him, rather sarcastically Justice Waqar said that he did not know what is happening as he only watched wrestling on TV.
In the detailed judgment, Justice Waqar Seth wrote that the clause 66 states, “We direct the Enforcement Agencies to strive their level best to apprehend the fugitive/convict ad to ensure that the punishment is inflicted as per law and if found dead, his corpse be dragged to the D-Chowk, Islamabad , Pakistan and be hanged for 03 days.”
Following which, the government announced it would file a reference against Justice Waqar in the Supreme Judicial Council (SJC).
