We call on the Pakistani authorities to do everything possible to ensure than Major Ali releases Gola quickly.”Police officers and soldiers went to Gola’s home at around 1 a.m. yesterday. Malik Allah Bakhsh, a police officer, ordered Gola to come with them because “Major Ali” wanted to question him.“We are very worried about Gola,” his wife told Reporters Without Borders. “He has done nothing and we do not know why they took him away.”Speaking on condition of anonymity, a journalist based in the Balochi capital of Quetta told Reporters Without Borders that Gola’s arrest was probably linked to his coverage of recent clashes between the security forces and Balochi nationalists. Gola is himself a member of the Balochi ethnic group.In a separate development, BBC correspondent Nisar Khokhar and a local journalist were denied entry on 15 June to Dera Bugti, a district of Balochistan that is controlled by the Pakistani army.

The Division Bench of Justice DN Patel and Justice Prateek Jalan has issued notices to all the municipal corporations in Delhi. Filed by DHCBA through its President Senior Advocate Mohit Mathur, the present is filed challenging the assessment order passed by the South Delhi Municipal Corporation on 29/11/18, and any notice issued thereafter, asking for self-assessment of property tax returns on lawyers’ offices under sections 123A and 123B of the DMC Act. It is argued that the premises of the DHCBA is used for assisting the courts in dispensation of justice, therefore, calling the usage of such premises by advocates as ‘commercial activity’ has far reaching consequences. Various judgments of the Supreme Court are cited in the petition to contend that the premises of lawyers are used for professional activities and not for business activities. Therefore, non-residential rates shall not apply for the premises used by the advocates.
