For the first time in the history of the country, the Supreme Court of Pakistan began hearing cases through e-court system.
A three-member bench under Chief Justice of Pakistan Asif Saeed Khosa heard cases through the system.
Utilising the system, lawyers presented their arguments from SC Karachi registry through video link.
Initially, the system will be available in SC Islamabad and Karachi registry.
Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Asif Saeed Khosa also remarked that the new system would be instrumental. It will also dispense swift justice at a low cost.
The decision of the first case through e-court system:
During the proceedings, the pre-arrest plea for bail of murder suspects Noor Mohammad was approved.
The suspect was named in a murder case in 2014 in Shadabpur, said the CJP, adding that he was not involved in the murder.
However, the CJP said eyewitnesses said that unknown men carried out the killing.
The Sindh High Court had not made a decision on bail from 2016 to 2019.
