“The secretary establishment should be told that strict action will be taken against violation of court’s orders,” he maintained.

Additional Attorney General told court that the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has been informed about the situation while the same will also be done with the secretary.

CJP Nisar had earlier directed all concerned departments including defence ministry to cooperate with FIA in Asghar Khan case.
