Old Judicial record

At the eve of Mohtarma Benazir’s assassination, mob around country could not control sentiments, resultantly, not only tranquility had taken but also the private and government properties were torched. Particularly in Sindh Province where the majority of masses assembled and in anguish they set ablaze the main judicial complex of District Courts, Dadu as well as torched the judicial record. However, with great efforts some of the cases of old judicial record are re-constructed/re-constituted. Judicial heritage is spread over long history in itself as such there was a need to prepare a strategy for its preservation, therefore, initially as first stage old judicial record was traced out, reconstructed, reconstituted and assembled at one place, thereafter as second phase strategy, the original record is being scanned and will be saved in computers. At present, some cases of 1944, 1945, 1954, 1956, 1960 and 1964 have been scanned.
