Quetta, May 22 (ANI): Unable to satisfy the judges during a hearing of cases pertaining to missing persons in Balochistan, Deputy Attorney General (AG) Malik Sikander walked out of court and later submitted his resignation, only to come back as a lawyer.
"I have the right to live my life with respect. That is why I am resigning and appearing in court as a common lawyer," The Express Tribune quoted Sikander, as saying.
The Supreme Court, displeased with the absence of the defence secretary, interior secretary and the prime minister's prinicipal secretary who had been summoned earlier, asked the deputy AG whether they had been presented with the court's order or not.
Sikander replied that he had not received a copy of the court's order. Dissatisfied with the answer, Chief Justice Iftikhar Mohammed Chaudhry ordered him to give a written statement to the court, stating that he was unable to satisfy the court's orders.
Sikander requested the court to give him "at least a day" but the court refused. Unable to satisfy the court, he walked out saying he would return in five minutes as 'advocate' instead of 'Deputy AG' Malik Sikander.
The court did not comment on his behaviour.
Of those summoned, only the governor of Balochistan's principal secretary appeared before the court. (ANI)
