Karachi: Bail application of murder accused rejected
KARACHI: Additional district and sessions judge (south), after recording arguments from both sides, rejected the bail application of a murder case accused on Monday. Accused Adil had requested the court in the bail plea to release him as he was a `minor` and the prosecution did not have sufficient evidence against him. Public prosecutor Abdul Maharoof opposed the plea and submitted that the accused was nominated in the first information report and eyewitnesses had testified to his involvement in the case. The prosecutor requested the court to reject the plea, arguing that there was no doubt regarding the age of the accused as the school certificate had shown his age to be about 22 years.
