The chief justice is believed to be personally overseeing the investigations.

A Joint Investigation Team (JIT) was constituted to probe into the incidents.

Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar has said there is no development as yet in the probe into the firing incidents at a Supreme Court judge's residence a day earlier.

Unidentified assailants fired gunshots at the Supreme Court judge's house in two separate incidents.

The first firing incident occurred at 10:45 pm Saturday night and the second one at 9:10 am on Sunday morning but fortunately, no casualties were reported in the attacks.

Haley to Russian Federation on Syria's Chemical Weapons: 'We Know Who Did This'
Russian Federation is expected to call an emergency session of UN Security Council to discuss the strikes on Syria at 11A.M. The government's capture of Douma, the last town held by the rebels in eastern Ghouta, marked a major victory for Assad.

While hearing a case related to the Football Federation of Pakistan on Monday, the CJP remarked,"I am looking into the incidents of firing at the Lahore residence of Justice Ijazul Ahsan". He directed Inspector General of Punjab Police Captain (retd) Arif Nawaz to thoroughly investigate the incident. He had taken oath as the new chief justice of Lahore High Court (LHC) in November 2015.

The lawyers' bodies strongly condemned firing on the residence of Justice Ijazul Ahsan and announced to go on strike on Monday (today).

Justice Ijazul Ashan was also a member of the five-member bench which delivered judgment in Panama Papers case, and is also monitoring-judge to supervise the implementation of Panama Papers case's verdict.

On July 28 a year ago, a five-judge bench of the apex court unanimously disqualified Sharif and directed the NAB to file references against him, his sons - Hassan and Hussain Nawaz - daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Captain (retd) Muhammad Safdar and Ishaq Dar.

The council also termed the incident utter failure of the government and its law enforcement agencies to provide safety and security to members of the judiciary.
