SHC Issues Notice To Federal Government, Petroleum Ministry

KARACHI: Sindh High Court (SHC) on Tuesday issued notices to Federal Government and Ministry for Petroleum and Natural Resources over recent price-hike on petroleum products.

The court held hearing on a petition filed by Advocate Moulvi Iqbal Haider against the increase in prices of the petroleum products across the country.

The petitioner stated prices were increased despite the case not being concluded which is equivalent to locking horns with the independant judiciary.Justice Mohammad Ali Mazhar remarked that this move of the federal government could be part of their policy meter, however, it has not submitted its reply in the case despite receiving court’s notice a month ago.

The court then adjourned hearing of the case till May 16, ordering Additional Attorney General to submit a reply in next hearing.
