    Larkana judge resigns over 'humiliation' by CJP

    Additional District and Sessions Judge Larkana, Gul Zameer Solangi, resigned from his post due to the inappropriate and 'humiliating' behaviour of the Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Mian Saqib Nisar. 
    Additional session Judge has sent his resignation to the Registrar Sindh High Court on Tuesday.  
    Earlier on Saturday, Chief Justice Nisar visited Larkana and had expressed anger at the sessions judge during a surprise visit to his court. Chief Justice had questioned the lower court's ongoing proceedings and showed ire after he spotted the judge's mobile phone on his desk.
    The Chief Justice, then, picked up the mobile phone and threw it on the desk. He warned the sessions judge to leave his mobile phone at home during hearings.
    In his resignation letter, Judge Solangi wrote that he was posted in Larkana on March 20, 2017. He stated that the chief justice's "behaviour during 'ongoing court proceedings' of my court, which was widely aired in the electronic, print and social media"."I have suffered deep anguish and injury to my self-respect and dignity, therefore, I am unable to continue my job with your esteemed organisation," according to the content of resignation letter. 

    The Chief justice had also ordered the sessions judge's immediate transfer. He remarked, "We cannot compromise on judicial respect."
