As reported, a power outage hit the Supreme Court building in the federal capital during the hearing of the case lodged by the Sunni Ittehad Council (SIC) about the reserved seats.

As reported, when the lights went out, SIC lawyer Faisal Siddiqui engaged with Chief Justice of Pakistan Qazi Faez Isa on the electricity issue.

“The power supply has also been cut off here,” the SIC lawyer said.

The CJP injured, “Why didn’t electricity come from the generator?”

The television and lights were on, CJ Isa said adding, “I believe, only the air conditioners of the courtroom are not working”.
