Lahore: 2 murder accused abscond from court
LAHORE: Two accused of attempting murder of a local journalist on Friday managed to escape from the court of an additional district & sessions judge after their interim bails were rejected. Accused Majid Bhatti and Shahid Bhatti had shot and injured Kashif Latif outside the main gate of Lahore Press Club two months ago. On Friday, AD&SJ Sadaqatullah Khan cancelled the interim bails of both accused after hearing the arguments of complainant’s counsel Aftab Ahmad Bajwa.
Sub–Inspector Alamdar Ali Butt of Qilla Gujjar Singh police station produced the accused before the court. Soon after the judge announced his decision, the accused fled the courtroom in the presence of police personnel.
