Rawalpindi: ATC orders jail authorities to produce terror suspect
RAWALPINDI: The Anti–Terrorism Court No II on Thursday directed the Adiala Jail superintendent to explain as to why he did not produce a suspected would-be suicide bomber before the court. The court also directed the jail authorities to produce the accused before the court on November 3 during the next hearing of the case. ATC–II Judge Sakhi Muhammad Kahoot adjourned the hearing after the Wah Police sought more time to complete their investigation and to submit the charge sheet against the accused Hameedullah Mehsud, who was arrested on August 21 soon after the twin suicide attacks outside the Pakistan Ordnance Factory in Wah.
The fatal blasts in August killed more than 70 people and injured over 100 people. A suicide jacket was recovered by the police from the toilet of a nearby mosque from where Hameedullah was arrested.
The police identified the suicide bombers that carried out the attack as Murad and Sowrat Khan. The name of the other would-be suicide bomber is Bakhtair. The police recovered suicide vests, hand grenades and other explosives from Akora Khattak in Noshera district on the basis of information obtained from Hameedulah.
