SARGODHA: Police have registered a case against 41 lawyers for misbehaving with a woman assistant commissioner in Sargodha.
Sources said anti-terrorism clauses have been included in the FIR, which names the former district bar general secretary and five other lawyers.
The case was registered after lawyers quarreled with the assistant commissioner (AC) and locked her inside a courtroom for not giving a decision of their choice.
AC Anum Ali remained locked in the room for some time. The police led by Deputy Commissioner Liaquat Chattha and ASP City Habibur Rahman Bugti reached the spot and unlocked the room later.
The lawyers also damaged furniture in the office.
Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif had taken notice of the incident and ordered an inquiry into the matter to bring the culprits to justice.
