Senior Supreme Court (SC) judge Justice Ijazul Ahsan on Thursday resigned from his post, just a day after Justice Sayyed Mazahar Ali Akbar Naqvi stepped down from his position, Aaj News reported.

Justice Ahsan, who would probably be the next chief justice, has sent his resignation to the President of Pakistan. However, the reason for the early departure of him was not mentioned.

The development comes a day after Justice Naqvi resigned from the Supreme Court saying it was no longer possible for him to continue due to circumstances which were a matter of public knowledge.

Justice Naqvi resigned after the apex court turned down his request to grant a stay against the proceedings of the Supreme Judicial Council (SJC), which had issued show notice to the judge for amassing illegitimate assets and misconduct.

Earlier on Thursday, President Dr Arif Alvi accepted the resignation of Justice Naqvi.

As per a press release issued by the President House today, Dr Alvi accepted Justice Naqvi’s resignation “on the advice of the prime minister under Article 179 (retiring age) of the Constitution”.

“It was an honour to be appointed and to serve as a judge first of the Lahore High Court and then as the Supreme Court of Pakistan. In the circumstances which are a matter of public knowledge and to some extent public record, it is no longer possible for me to continue to serve as a judge of the Supreme Court of Pakistan,” Justice Naqvi had written in his resignation letter.

Sad day and validation of rumours on persecution of judges in judiciary, guess the grand plan for level-playing field is underway, this operation should be called ''operation jackal''. Even the Peshawar HC CJ has said today that he has been receiving threats. But the damage control gurus will get busy pretty soon with their media friends and will never let truth prevail.

The cj should on moral grounds hold nawaz sharif responsible for corruption charges as well. Its now apparent that the cjp is a party man. Sad day really.

@E, To hold some one accountable on moral grounds, one should first himself have morals to stand on.

@Shakeel Ahmad, "Project Imran up rooted along with facilitators." Along with facilitators? Who do you think is pulling all these strings right now? There's only ever been one puppet master, brother.

This court is no place for good men ...... If the Chief Justice still does not understand that the house he heads is deeply troubled them he is in serious denial and the only sufferer will be Pakistan.
