The Supreme Court on Tuesday sought a report from federal and provincial governments over estimated loss of properties and lives of general public during the spate of violence after the apex court acquitted Asia Bibi of blasphemy charges and ordered her release.

Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar took a notice of media reports that huge losses had been caused to general public on account of the judgement delivered by the Supreme Court in Asia Bibi case.

The spokesperson for the Supreme Court said, “Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar has taken notice of huge losses of property and lives caused to general public by riots and mobs in response to the judgement of Supreme Court of Pakistan so as to compensate the sufferings of the victims who lost their valuables or properties during tragic incidents”.

He said that Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar had sought a report pertaining to details of estimated loss from the federal and all provincial governments within three days.

Hundreds of the Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) supporters, including their leaders, had been booked for disrupting peace, blocking roads and rioting across the country. On the directions of the government, police had launched a crackdown on people involved in arson, vandalism and violence. The arrests of mobsters were being made on the basis of forensic analysis of mobile phone and CCTV footage.
