SUNDAY TIMES KARACHI: Litigants faced troubles following proceedings suspended in various courts across the country following lawyers’ strike on the appeal of Pakistan Bar Council.

High courts and subordinate courts, however, continued proceedings despite the strike but litigants were only being given new dates of hearings due to the absence of lawyers.

Many arrivers were stopped at the gate of Karachi’s City Court, whereas, court building in Sahiwal was completely closed.

Protestors of Sindh High Court Bar have also stopped private and government lawyers at the entrance gate of Sindh High Court (SHC) building.
