KARACHI: Additional District and Sessions Judge (west) Jahangir Ahmed Dayo on Tuesday issued warrants for the arrest of four police officials since they failed to appear in court to give their testimony in a robbery case. The court had issued a number of notices to ASI Raja Azmat Mahmood, sub–inspectors Bux Jamal, Abdul Rasool and Mohammad Jahanzeb, directing them to appear in court to record their statements in a case registered under Section 397 of the Pakistan Penal Code at Site police station.
