A local court in Lahore on Wednesday issued non-bailable arrest warrants for Geo/Jang group owner Mir Shakeel-ur-Rehman and Mir Ibrahim.
Additional district and sessions judge Nadeem Ansari was hearing a petition filed senior anchorperson of ARY News Mubasher Lucman. It was contended in a petition that Geo and Jang group had been resorting to character assassination of Mr. Lucman on behest of Mir Shakeel and Mir Ibrahim.
Lucman, in his request, said his integrity was hurt by the baseless allegations by Jang/Geo group, while his family was also undergoing agony.
Consequently, he called for the tribunal to bring action against Mir Shakeel and Mir Ibrahim as per law.
The court subsequently issued non-bailable warrants for both the nominated accused as they did not turn up despite several summons of the court.
The sessions court ordered the police to stop and produce Mir Shakeel and Mir Ibrahim on July 26 before the court.
