The head judiciary have today issued statement over the ongoing case. In her statement, she said that there is no formal report that had been made at her office as the chairperson of judicial service commission and judiciary head. She went further and said the the two, after arrest, notified her of the statement recording at the DCI offices.

While concluding her statement, she made it clear that she will not make any comment for now but she will wait the final findings of the investigations and thereafter issue the official statement over the same.

She inform the judges to continue discharging their duties without fear. This now raises much eyebrows since some judges believe that the chief justice somehow tilt towards the executive side because they expected her to react harshly after the arrest of judges but she did not.

This now raises question, is she an executive mole? What are your suggestions.
