ATC reserves verdict on bail petition of 20 protesting lawyers


An Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) in Lahore on Tuesday reserved verdict in bail petition submitted by 20 lawyers allegedly involved in the attack on Punjab Institute of Cardiology (PIC) hospital.
The ATC resumed the hearing of the bail petition of 20 lawyers who are facing charges of attacking PIC hospital in Lahore. The officials of Shadman police station submitted record in the court.
The petitioner’s counsel said that the arrested lawyers were not present on the incident’s site and police officials had taken them into custody during raids at their offices and residences. The counsel sought ATC to approve bail petition of the lawyers.
The anti-terrorism court reserved verdict on the petition which will be announced later. On December 11, the dispute between lawyers and young doctors had reemerged as a rally attended by hundreds of lawyers stormed Punjab Institute of Cardiology (PIC) in Lahore.
Meanwhile, the Investigation Northern Cantonment police on Tuesday arrested another lawyer involved in the Punjab Institute of Cardiology (PIC) attack case, Zeshan Khalid advocate.
The team conducted a raid and arrested the accused involved in Section 7ATA and other heinous crimes.
The accused advocate was also involved in torturing a judge for granting bail to an accused some months ago. SP Investigation Northern Cantonment Ijaz Rasheed had appreciated the raiding team.—INP
