Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar has observed that he will not tolerate disrespect to the teachers.
He passed the remarks while hearing a suo motu notice of production of former vice-chancellor of Punjab University Prof Dr Mujahid Kamran and other professors handcuffed before an accountability court.
At this, the CJP observed that he saw the video of handcuffed former officials of the university at 12 night and made a call to chairman NAB, who stated that the DG NAB would satisfy him over the issue. He further remarked that if the DG NAB did not want to do the job, he should quit.
However, the CJP observed that he would order registration of a case against him, if he was at fault.
"Then you can go around, seeking bail in handcuffs," he added.
Upon hearing this, Shahzad got teary-eyed, prompting the chief justice to further remark: "Now that you yourself felt the heat, you apear to be in tears." However, the DG replied that I have personally visited Dr Mujahid Kamran and apologised to him and the other professors." To which, a NAB prosecutor submitted that Mujahid Kamran and others were produced in handcuffs due to security reasons.
"Producing Mujahid Kamran and other professors in handcuffs is akin to killing their dignity. I will not tolerate any disrespect to teachers in this manner," the chief justice warned.
Subsequently, the hearing concluded with the submission of DG Shahzad's written apology, which was accepted by thecourt.
