Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Vice-Chairman Shah Mehmood Qureshi said Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan’s press conference in response to the judicial commission’s report on Quetta attack was “tantamount to attack on Supreme Court of Pakistan”.
Talking to reporters outside Bani Gala residence of PTI chief Imran Khan, following a meeting of PTI’s parliamentary committee, Qureshi said the issue of Panama Papers leaks and Nisar’s reponse to the judicial commission’s report were discussed in the party meeting.

Nisar’s remarks contempt of court?
Qureshi said that the report was compiled by a sitting judge of the Supreme Court, who was assigned the task by a three member-bench of the apex court. He added that the judge filed the 110-page report after conducting investigations over a span of 54 days.
“The government tried its level best to keep the report off the record but as everyone knows, Justice Qazi Faiz Esa is a man of principles,” he said.
He said that Justice Esa presented the reported after enough deliberation but Nisar said that he would challenge the report and that the report is ‘unilateral’. Qureshi said that the statements of Nisar could fall into the category of contempt of court.
He added that it would not be strange, if the top court takes a sou moto notice against Nisar’s statements.
