The CJP directed Justice Ghulam Rabbani to conduct a proble into the allegations of government interference in the case. He will also look into the media campaign against the judiciary, the CJ said, referring to an ad run by various TV channels.
The verdict delivered today (Monday) revolves around the suspension of Qureshi who was probing the scam. The NICL scam case verdict itself is currently pending.
