LHC quashes FIRs against 350 industrial units

LAHORE: A division bench of the Lahore High Court has quashed all the FIRs registered against more than 350 industrial units and also stayed criminal proceedings initiated by the Sales Tax Department.

The bench held that the registration of cases and criminal proceedings against industrial units by the department were illegal and void as it had taken this action without adjudication and proper inquiry.

The bench comprising Justice Mansoor Ali Shah and Justice Mamoon Rasheed Sheikh passed the orders while disposing of 350 writ petitions filled by M/s Taj International and different other industrial concerns against the Sales Tax Department pertaining to registration of cases on the basis of fake invoices and criminal proceedings.
