For the Applicant/Appellant: In person.

For the Respondents: Mr. Muhammad Munir Peracha, ASC Mr. Mehmood A. Sheikh, AOR

Date of hearing: 10.08.2012.

Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhrv, CJ.- Mr. Muhammad Munir Peracha, learned counsel for the respondent has stated that under a wrong impression, the judgment of this Court dated 7th October, 2011 has not been implemented as according to respondents review petition has been filed against the said judgment. When we inquired as to whether any request has been made for early fixation of the review petition or any stay order has been obtained, learned counsel could not answer except saying that the judgment will be implemented today positively by issuing promotion order of the petitioner as well as making payments of all outstanding dues/salaries to him. Although the department apparently has committed serious contempt of Court yet in view of apology and the statement given at the bar, no further action is called far. The matter is disposed of accordingly.
