Karachi: Charge sheet amended in Wali Babar murder case
KARACHI: An anti-terrorism court on Monday framed an amended charge sheet, by inserting section 7 of Anti-Terrorism Act (ATA), in Wali Khan Babar murder case. However, all the five accused present in the court pleaded not guilty and opted to contest the case. The court, headed by the judge Ghulam Mustafa Memon, after framing the amended charge sheet, issued notices to prosecution witnesses (PWs) for March 7.
Earlier, the court had allowed the request of the public prosecutor for submission of the amended challan after inserting section 7 of ATA which was excluded from the first charge sheet by the investigators.
Wali Khan Babar, a Geo News reporter, was shot dead on January 13, 2011. Five accused — Mohammad Shahrukh, Faisal Mehmood, Mohammad Shakeel, Naveed alias Polka, Syed Mohammad Ali Rizvi — were arrested in the case.
