Karachi: Double murder
Karachi: The same court, meanwhile, re-issued non-bailable warrants (NBWs) for the arrest of five policemen, a medico-legal officer and four prosecution witnesses in a double murder case.
The NBWs were earlier issued on December 4, 2007 for the arrest of sub-inspectors Sajid, Ghulam Mustafa and Mohammad Arif, investigation officer Mehmood Akthar, constable Mohammad Sarfaraz, MLO Dr Zafar Shah Khan of Abbasi Shaheed Hospital, and other prosecution witnesses Naseer Ahmed, Mohammad Altaf, Mohammad Younus and Sakeena Bibi for not complying with the court order.
Police authorities were directed to arrest and produce them in court on the next hearing. However, they failed to appear in court and the judge re-issued their arrest warrants on Tuesday and re-directed the police high-ups to order their arrest and ensure their production in court on the next hearing.
According to the prosecution, 70-year-old Abdul Latif stabbed the brother and uncle of his son-in-law Mushtaq Ahmed on September 27, 2000. The injured, Waris Hussain and Farman Ali, could not survive though they were rushed to Abbasi Shaheed Hospital. The post-mortem examination of the bodies was conducted by Dr Zafar Shah Khan. However, he has not appeared in court to testify so far.
The accused was booked under Section 302 of the Pakistan Penal Code in the case (FIR No 1772000) at the Khwaja Ajmer Nagri police station. The court fixed March 11 as the next date of hearing.
