Nazim Jokhio: Indictment of Jam Awais deferred         


An additional district and sessions court deferred the indictment of accused Jam Awais in Nazim Jokhio murder case.

PPP MPA Jam Awais, who, along with his servants, is facing charges of murdering Nazim Jokhio, was not produced before a sessions court for a fifth consecutive hearing by jail authorities.

Additional District and Sessions Judge-I (Malir) Faraz Ahmed Chandio resumed the hearing of the case.

At the outset of today’s hearing, Awais’s lawyer told the court that his client was admitted to hospital and undergoing treatment.After hearing arguments, the court deferred indictment and adjourned the hearing till November 12.

In October last year, the family of Nazim Jokhio said that PPP MPA Jam Awais Gohram Jokhio and his men had allegedly tortured Nazim Jokhio to death as he tried to stop his foreign guests from hunting houbara bustards in the Memon Goth area of Karachi.

Police registered a murder case against Awais, his brother MNA Jam Kareem and others.
