Quetta: Lawyers protest against DC office officials

Staff Reporter :

Lawyers on Wednesday staged a protest demonstration against some officers of the Deputy Commissioner (DC) Quetta’s office. Lawyers accused some officers of the registrar’s office of taking bribery from the people. The registrar’s office has the mandate to register properties located in the commercial hub of Quetta city.

“We protest against increasing ratio of bribery in the registrar office”, Naseebullah Tareen Advocate, a senior lawyer said. He said the concerned officers of the DC office adopted an inappropriate attitude towards Najeebullah Kakar what he claimed when the lawyer turned down the demand of the officials. Despite repeated attempts, the Quetta Voice was not able to speak to the deputy commissioner about his reaction to the incident.

The Spokesman government of Balochistan, Liaquat Shahwani met the protesting lawyers and issued them addressing their grievances. “We will not spare the responsible officer”, Mr. Shahwani said. He requested the lawyers to open the road since common people were suffering from its blockade.
