Moreover, former president and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Asif Zardari called for a high-level investigation into the incident.

The cowardly gun attack on the house of Supreme Court's Justice Ijaz-ul-Hassan raked in support for the judge from Pakistan's politicians and army on Sunday.

He was also a member of the bench during the Panama Papers reference. The bench ruled that an individual disqualified under Article 62 and 63 can not hold the chairmanship of a political party, leading to Nawaz Sharif losing the presidency of PML-N.

Justice Ahsan often spends the weekend in Lahore, his hometown, where he, along with the chief justice, presides over several cases related to public welfare issues and other matters at the Lahore registry.

He is also the monitoring judge of the ongoing corruption cases in accountability court, filed by National Accountability Bureau (NAB), against Nawaz Sharif, his family and former finance minister Ishaq Dar.
