ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court on Tuesday admitted a petition asking the court to stop the sacking of Chief of Army Staff General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani and Director-General Inter-Services Intelligence Chief Shuja Ahmed Pasha for regular hearing.

Hearing the petition filed by lawyer Fazal Karim Butt, Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry observed that a judicial bench will be constituted to hear the plea.

Rebuffing the registrar’s earlier objection on the the petition’s maintainability, the chief justice said that the registrar “cannot raise such objections.”

The chief justice asked Attorney General Maulvi Anwarul Haq to take directives from the government and inform the court if the government had any reservations on the plea.
