SC takes up plea against AJK CJ

ISLAMABAD: A three-member bench of the Supreme Court (SC) will today (Monday) take up a petition challenging the appointment of the Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) chief justice. The bench consists of SC Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, Justice Ijaz Ahmed and Justice Mahmood Akhtar. Earlier on May 27, the SC had allowed the senior-most judge of the AJK Supreme Court to submit an amended petition against the appointment of AJK SC’s incumbent chief justice. “We will not be issuing any directions against the AJK officials; rather whatever order is issued in the instant case will be against our own prime minister and the law ministry,” Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry had observed. masood rehman
