TOBA TEK SINGH: The city police on Wednesday registered a case against a lawyer for allegedly slapping a woman in the courtroom.
Additional District and Sessions Judge Rana Riaz Ahmad had ordered registration of a case against advocate Jafar Ali on the complaint of a petitioner, Irshad Bibi, of Mauza Kohal Kalan.
She alleged that she appeared before Civil Judge Imaduddin in a case and the accused Jaffer Ali, pleading for the rival party, slapped her in the face when she answered a question which did not support the lawyers’ stance.
The petitioner’s nose started bleeding because of the slapping.
The AD&SJ ordered registration of a case against the accused lawyer under sections 354 and 337(A-1) of the PPC. The police had yet not arrested the lawyer.
