ISLAMABAD: Supreme Court Justice Khalilur Rehman Ramday is retiring today (Tuesday) after reaching the age of superannuation.
However, he is likely to be appointed on an ad-hoc basis for one more year to overcome the increasing backlog of cases.
Justice Ramday was born in Lahore on January 13, 1945. He is the son of Justice Muhammad Siddique. He started his practice as a lawyer in 1969 and was appointed as the Punjab advocate general in March 1987 and inducted as a judge of the Lahore High Court in 1988. He was appointed a judge of the Supreme Court in 2002.
