Court extends bail of cleric’s sons in sexual abuse case

15

An Additional District and Sessions Court on Wednesday extended bail of Mufti Azizur Rehman’s three sons in a sexual abuse case.

The court announced the verdict after hearing arguments from both prosecution and defence sides.

A police report presented to the court said the cleric’s sons, identified as Latifur Rehman, Wasimur Rehman, and Wasiur Rehman, were found guilty
during investigation.

The investigation officer informed the court that the investigation against the three sons of Mufti Aziz, who is in jail on judicial remand, had been completed and that he had already submitted the case record to the court.

On June 28, the court had sent Mufti Azizur Rehman to jail on a 14-day judicial remand. Amid tight security, the police produced the cleric before Judicial Magistrate Rana Rasheed Ali Khan with his face covered with a piece of cloth.

The investigation officer informed that he had completed the investigation against the accused.

When the magistrate asked the cleric if he wanted to say something, the latter replied that he desired to record his statement.

The court sent the accused to jail with directives for the jail authorities to produce him before the relevant court to record his statement.
