However, he does not have full instructions. Therefore the learned APP seeks adjournment. 2. I have heard Ms.Bajwa for the Applicant. She submitted that the allegations in the FIR pertain to the alleged incident which had occurred in July-August 2013 and the FIR is lodged after five years. From the papers annexed to the application it appears that there is a long history behind lodging of this FIR. According to Ms.Bajwa, the FIR is lodged with a malafide intention and the first informant is being used as a pawn to seek revenge against the Applicant. Considering these submissions and considering that the learned APP is seeking time, I am inclined to grant interim protection to the Applicant till the next date. ORDER
