In a written statement submitted on Tuesday in an anti-terrorism court in Karachi, father of Naqeebul-lah Mehsud expressed reservations on the court’s ability to act impartially in the case against former SSP Malir Rao Anwar.
Mohammad Khan’s statement, submitted through his counsel Faisal Siddiqui, details his lack of confidence in the ATC to impart justice in the fake encounter case against Anwar. Seeking ad-journment of hearings, Khan has requested the spe-cial case to be transferred to the Sindh High Court (SHC) under Section 526 of the Criminal Procedure Code “(CrPC).
“In view of the pendency of the Criminal Trans-fer Application no. 50 of 2018 and Criminal Trans-fer Application no.49 of 2018, we strongly object to this honourable court proceeding with the bail ap-plication in the special case,” said the statement as it sought time until SHC ruling.
