Islamabad: Islamabad High Court has allowed former chief justice of Pakistan (CJP) Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry to retain the official bulletproof car for a few more days.

A two-member division bench also scraped the order of IHC’s single-member bench which had asked the ex-CJP to surrender the car to the court by Dec 8.

Justice Siddiqui on Dec 2 said the bulletproof car should have been returned to the federal government after the IHC order of Jan 2014 had been set aside. He, however, had directed Justice Chaudhry to surrender the vehicle to the court by Dec 8.

An IHC division bench, headed by Justice Noorul Haq N. Qureshi, on May 11 this year had set aside the January 2014 order of the IHC but instead of deciding the fate of the vehicle or giving its possession to the federal government, it remanded the matter back to Justice Siddiqui with a direction to decide the case after hearing all the parties concerned.
