The high court has suggested the stakeholders to look for a solution by Monday in order to move animals to sanctuaries from the Islamabad Zoo. The Islamabad High Court (IHC) Chief Justice Athar Minalllah coordinated to present a report on the game plan by Monday. The court denied the potential outcomes of broadening the cutoff time for the animals to be transferred from the zoo.
Amer Ali Ahmad, Chief Commissioner, who said he was uninformed of the entire turn of events, communicated that they would take the necessary steps to improve the state of the zoo. To this, the chief justice commented that the court had already released it orders to close down Islamabad Zoo. The chief answered that they would give land to the Islamabad Wildlife Management Board (IWMB) where the zoo animals could be moved. Justice Minallah reviewed that Prime Minister Imran Khan too had communicated worries about abuse with Kaavan and how it went through torment.
The court commented that all respondents were ignoring the orders and inquired as to why the IHC’s choice relating to moving of animals to the sanctuaries was not being carried out despite the fact that no one spoke against decision. The court stated to the Ministry of Climate Change (MoCC) Secretary that Zartaj Gul, the Minister of Climate Change was selected as an individual from the board that needed to plan and regulate the entire transfer process.
