LAHORE (Dunya News) – Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar is hearing public interest cases ‎for the first in evening today (Saturday). ‎

The evening court is hearing cases under the West Pakistan Family Courts Act 1964 and Guardians & Wards Act 1890 from 2pm to 7pm in winters and 4pm to 8pm in summers.

It’s a pilot project and will be extended to 36 other districts if required for expeditious decision of family cases.
