Karachi: Witnesses fail to identify dreaded rape suspect
KARACHI: Two witnesses failed to identify a dreaded suspect nominated in several rape and robbery cases before a sessions court on Tuesday. Mohammad Ali Hajiano and Umair Khan have been charged with committing robberies and raping women within the remit of Gizri and Defence police stations in 2008-09.
Complainant Kamal’s wife and his daughter failed to identify the accused and deposed that they could not properly see the faces of the robbers due to darkness. They, however, supported the prosecution and pointed at Hajiano that he was the main suspect who used to rob people in the Defence area in his infamous white Toyota Corolla car.
Sessions Judge Javed Ahmed Kerio, who was conducting trial inside the Judicial Complex, adjourned the hearing till February 20. The accused were booked under sections 392 (punishment for robbery) and 34 (common intention) of the Pakistan Penal Code.
