ISLAMABAD: Chief Justice of Pakistan, Mr. Justice Qazi Faez Isa on Tuesday ordered that public servants should not be called ‘Sahib’ (master). “This unnecessarily elevates the status of public servants”, the top judge of the country observed during court proceedings.
The top judge barred the use of the word today in an order pertaining to a bail plea. The case in question involved the murder of a child in Peshawar last year. The police had nominated the petitioner, Javid Khan, in the first information report on the basis of statements recorded by the victim’s relatives.
In his plea filed in the apex court, the petitioner had contended that the relatives’ statements did not stand reason and sought bail in the case.
