The police managed to restore order only after baton charging and year gassing the mob, both inside and outside the courthouse. President Leghari had given his support to Sharif. He was appalled by the measures being taken by the government, but had no powers to dismiss it since the Eight Amendment had been revoked. He was particularly concerned when he was asked by the government to dismiss Sajjad Ali Shah and appoint an acting Chief Justice of Pakistan. He, therefore, resigned on 2 December 1997. Shortly afterwards, Muhammad Rafiq Tatar, the PML (Pakistan Muslim League) was elected to replace him. On 23 December, Ajmal Mian was appointed as permanent Chief Justice. Sajjad Ali Shah had been dismissed. (en)
