Death-row inmate writes to IHC chief justice for relief


A death-row inmate has approached the Islamabad High Court (IHC) seeking directives for the government to ensure proper treatment of his poor eyesight, ARY News reported.
The convict, Khadim Hussain, who is incarcerated at Adiala Jail, wrote a letter to IHC Chief Justice Athar Minallah who converted it into a constitutional petition and sought reply in this regard from the authorities concerned.
Justice Minallah observed that this is a human rights issue and added he will issue a detailed verdict in the case.
He expressed displeasure over the government for failing to submit its response to the petition.—INP
