Islamabad (Staff Report): The Islamabad High Court (IHC) today (Wednesday) issued bailable arrest warrants for National Database and Registration Authority (Nadra) Chairman Usman Yusuf Mobeen.

According to details, the warrants were issued for the chairman for not appearing in the court despite orders.

In 2010, the IHC had ordered Nadra to provide police and Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) access to its biometric system and revenue record. The orders were issued while the court ruled on a petition filed by lawyer Waqas Malik.

Malik had requested the court to bind Nadra to provide access to its biometric system and revenue record. However, Nadra’s administration failed to comply with IHC’s orders. Later, the petitioner had filed a contempt of court plea against Nadra in 2016.

Justice Noor-ul-Haq Qureshi has ordered police to produce Mobeen before the court on March 3.
