LHC orders to arrest underage, unlicensed drivers
LAHORE: (Suno News) The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Friday ordered to arrest the underage and unlicensed drivers.
Justice Ali Zia Bajwa remarked, “Such drivers are playing with the lives of citizens. Don’t give any concession to any such driver.”
A hearing was held in the LHC on the plea of Afnan, an underage driver who killed six people by hitting his car with theirs in Lahore.
On the order of the court, the Lahore chief traffic officer (CTO) and the senior superintendent of police (SSP) appeared.
They told the court that provisions of terrorism had been included in the case against the accused.
The court remarked, “Action should also be taken against those who give vehicles to their minor children.”
The LHC also issued a notice on a plea for legal protection to the accused Afnan and sought a response from the officers concerned.
Speaking to the media, the plaintiff said that he wanted justice only, not death money.
The lawyer of the accused said, “Punishment should be given if there is a crime, but the right to a fair trial must be given.”
