Karachi: Suspects remanded
Karachi: The courts of different judicial magistrates on Wednesday remanded two suspects in police custody in over a dozen cases pertaining to targeted killing.
The police arrested Dr Amjad Saeed alias Javed and Mohammad Ismail Shah on Feb 9 for their alleged involvement in 13 cases of targeted killings within the remit of the Orangi Town, the Pirabad and the Shahrah-i-Noor Jehan police stations. The magistrates handed over the suspects to police on physical remand till Feb 14 and directed the investigation officers to produce them on next hearings.
Meanwhile, a group of lawyers on Thursday announced the boycott of legal proceedings at the city courts and demanded the removal of offices of non-governmental organisations from the court premises.
However, it did not affect the court proceedings since the Karachi Bar Associations did not back the call and urged the lawyers to appear in courts.
A few weeks ago the managing committee of the KBA had unanimously passed a resolution which demanded that the offices of the NGOs providing free legal assistance should be removed from the city courts and the prisons.
