Equally, it must be borne in mind that what an applicant must establish is the real risk (as opposed to the demonstrated certainty or probability) of an unfair trial.,"He said that Chief Justice Lahore High Court should take action against such judges who act upon the advice of Police /Prosecution blind foldedly and they do not dare to peruse the case. Such judges are playing in the hands of Police and are developing a sense of tyranny,injustice and inequality in the society. It seemed it was a reaction of undue delay in disposal of this petty theft case. As soon as he hurled his Chappal towards the Magistrate,Police thrashed the accused and registered another case under terrorism act against him on the complaint of a reader of the court.
