Military courts to take up 16 cases


Cases against 16 miscreants will be heard by the military courts who were allegedly involved in attacking military installations and disrespecting memorials of the martyrs following the arrest of former prime minister Imran Khan in Al-Qadir Trust case on May 9.

Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa government officials said that six military courts will handle the cases against those who desecrated the statues of Colonel Sher Khan Shaheed and other national heroes in Mardan and other places. They stated that trials for the apprehended culprits, including Shahzeb, Rehmatullah, Adnan, Shakirullah, Syed Alam and Yaser Nawaz, will take place in military courts. An anti-terrorism court in Mardan has accepted the plea to proceed with cases against the accused under the Army Act and the Official Secrets Act for their involvement in the attacks.
