The Supreme Court banned on Tuesday, senior anchorperson Shahid Masood’s TV programme for three months.
A three-judge bench headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar resumed hearing in case pertaining to allegations made by Masood regarding the rapist and murderer of a seven-year-old girl in Kasur.
The bench also directed Masood to submit a written unconditional apology.
As the hearing began, the chief justice revealed that the anchorperson had ridiculed a court officer on his show a day after appearing in court.
“It is possible we initiate contempt proceedings against him,” the chief justice remarked, adding, “how dare he say this about my law officer”.
