Justice Tariq Saleem issued the order in the Lahore High Court on a petition filed by the lawyer of accused Shahbaz Ahmed.

Shahbaz was charged with murdering lawyer Ahmed in Mandi Bahauddin in 2018. According to the lawyer, his client lost his mental balance due to torture in jail but the trial court rejected his request for release.

Justice Tariq Saleem ruled that whenever the accused was tried again, the trial court should have stopped the trial immediately after finding out that he was mentally ill.

The public prosecutor and the jail administration also did not bring the mental illness of the accused to the notice of the court.
