QUETTA: The chief justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry expressed resentment over the irresponsible coverage of the private TV channels and directed the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (Pemra) to take action against the management of these channels.

The chief justice issued these direction during the hearing into the suo moto case regarding deteriorating law and order situation in Balochistan with particular reference to the Police Headquarters suicide bombing in Quetta and killing of 14 people in Mach of the Bolan area. “The live coverage of Jinnah Avenue’s like incidents are against the norms as it causes panic among the public,” CJ remarked while criticising the reporting of the TV channels.
