Pindi suicide blasts ATC issues arrest warrants for five, including Mehsud
RAWALPINDI: Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) No 1 on Tuesday issued non-bailable warrants for the arrest of militant commander Baitullah Mehsud and his four associates over their alleged involvement in two separate suicide bombings in Rawalpindi.
Proceedings have been adjourned until April 21. Mehsud and his accomplices — Ikramullah, Faiz Ahmad, Qari Nazir and Qari Ismail — have been accused of involvement in last yearar’s bombing of a police picket at Golf Road, and that of an Army Medical College bus near the General Headquarters (GHQ).
The court, headed by Judge Chaudhry Habibur Rehman, has already issued arrest warrants for the five militants in Benazir Bhutto’s murder case.
The judge ordered a joint investigation team of security agencies to arrest the accused, and submit a compliance report before the court.
The court also extended the judicial remand of Rafaqat and Hasnain Gul, who are allegedly involved in the two bombings. The two were brought to the court under tight security, and were later moved to Adiala Jail.
