The Supreme Court suspended the Gilgit-Baltistan order of 2018 and said the people of the region should have rights equal to other citizens of the country.
“The government needs to ensure that the people of GB have the same respect and rights as all other,� said Chief Justice Saqib Nisar while hearing the case on Wednesday.
In May, several people were injured as police fired tear gas and resorted to aerial firing in Gilgit to stop protesters approaching the Gilgit-Baltistan (G-B) Assembly for a scheduled sit-in against the newly introduced G-B Order 2018.
