KARACHI: Lawyers across the country observed a strike and boycotted court proceedings across the country in protest of the murder of former joint secretary Karachi Bar Association Advocate Amir Haider Shah in Karachi last week.

Hearings of several high-profile cases, including the Benazir Bhutto murder case and the Trade and Development Authority (TDAP) graft case, were postponed as lawyers refused to appear in court in protest of the murder of their colleague.

Shah was gunned down by three masked men on a motorcycle below the Hassan Square flyover in Karachi on Friday evening.

Police officials said 37-year-old Shah, who hailed from district Khairpur, was fighting several cases related to land grabbing while some were of political nature in the anti-terrorism court (ATC).
