Sindh House attack: CJP Bandial orders to arrest perpetrators

19

Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Umar Ata Bandial on Monday directed authorities to arrest the perpetrators of the attack on Sindh House and directed the Attorney General of Pakistan Khalid Jawed Khan to submit a compliance report on Tuesday (today).

During a hearing at the apex court, the chief justice said that he had ordered implementation on the plea as per law and even if there is a complaint then concerned forums should be reached out for redressal.

While grilling the AGP Khalid Jawed Khan, the CJP asked him as to why court orders were not implemented regarding arrest of the suspects involved in Sindh House attack case. “We have added concerned sections in the FIR, however, the case does not fall under terrorism charges,” the AGP told the chief justice who said that the suspects should be arrested under new charges framed against them.

To this, the attorney general responded that they have arrested them but they secured bails. “The bails were granted when the case was filed under bailable offences,” CJP Umar Ata Bandial said and directed that a report should be submitted until tomorrow regarding action needed under fresh charges.
