Judge Chaudhry Habibur Rehman gave Tehseenullah Khan, a resident of Hayatabad, Peshawar, in police custody for three days for his alleged involvement in the Sept 20 Marriott bombing in which over 50 people, including some foreigners, were killed and around 200 injured. Secretariat police formally arrested the suspect on October 20 and recovered a red color car (ICT-LZ-311) and a laptop from his custody.
The police informed the court that the suspect hired the car from Hayatabad on September 17 that was seen in the limits of Islamabad on Sept 18. The police further informed the court that the data still safe on the seized laptop could lead them to the seizure of the explosive material and arrest of the accomplices of the suspect. The police sought a seven-day physical custody, but the judge granted a three-day remand of the suspect and directed the police to produce him before the court on Oct 24.
The suspect was brought to the court amid tight security. It may be mentioned here that the Secretariat police had already arrested three suspects on September 16. They have been identified as Dr Usman, a resident of Islamabad, Rana Ilyas, a resident of Faisalabad, and Muhammad Hameed, a resident of Toba Tek Singh.
