IHC issues arrest warrant for Nadra chairman for defying court orders


ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Wednesday ordered to issue bail able arrest warrants for National Database and Registration Authority (Nadra) Chairman Usman Yusuf Mobeen for not abiding by the court orders.
The high court had ordered Nadra in 2010 to provide police and Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) access to its biometric system and revenue record. The orders were issued while ruling on a petition filed by lawyer Waqas Malik.
In the petition, for the sake of state’s interest, Malik had requested the court to bound Nadra for provision of access to its biometric system and revenue record.
However, Nadra failed to comply with the court orders. Later in 2016, the petitioner had filed a contempt of court plea against Nadra.
Justice Noor-ul-Haq Qureshi ordered police to arrest and produce Mobeen before the court on March 3.
