A Joint Investigation Team (JIT) has been constituted to probe two separate attacks at the house of Justice Ijazul Ahsan in Lahore's Model Town.

Anwarul Haq, President Lahore Hight Court Bar, has called the incident an attack on Judiciary.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan condemned the attack, stating: "Sicilian-mafia-like tactics to pressurise senior judiciary are unacceptable in any democracy".

Further, Justice Ahsan often spends his weekends in Lahore, where he, along with the chief justice, presides several cases related to public welfare in Supreme Court's Lahore registry.

The judge was also part of the five-member bench that heard and decided the Panama Papers case, which resulted in the disqualification of the PML-N supreme leader.

He has also remained the chief justice of the Lahore High Court.
