Liquor recovery case against Sharjeel put off


The South judicial magistrate has adjourned the hearing of a liquor recovery case against former provincial minister SharjeelInamMemon due to his absence. The magistrate was hearing the case at the City Courts, where Memon did not appear during the session. His counsel informed the court that Memon had contracted coronavirus and so could not appear in court. The court adjourned the hearing till August 12. Meanwhile, a local court dismissed a case against 11 water tanker drivers, who had been arrested in Mochko for allegedly supplying contaminated water. The police produced the arrested drivers before the West judicial magistrate. The court asked the investigation officer (IO) whether the water samples from the seized tankers had been tested, to which the IO replied in the negative, adding that Karachi Water and Sewerage Board officials were not contacted for the tests either. Expressing annoyance over this, the court dismissed the case, commenting that the prosecution and investigation officer (IO) had failed to prove the allegations against the accused. The Mochko police had impounded 11 water tankers and arrested their drivers for allegedly supplying contaminated water.
