Sparing the Sindh IG of prosecution under contempt charges for the time being, the SHC ordered the provincial chief minister to take action against him and other officers.

These officers have been accused of failing to stop masked ‘policemen’ from besieging the high court, beating up journalists and the guards of former home minister  Mirza on May 23.  The judges had ‘rejected’ written apologies submitted by the IG and AIG for their failure to implement the court’s orders and then concealing the facts.
