Karachi: Bail denied
KARACHI: Additional District and Session Judge Javed Ahmed Kerio on Tuesday rejected the bail application of an accused in the murder case of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) activist Ateequr Rehman. The trial is taking place at the Judicial Complex, a court set up in the Central Prison. Mohajir Qaumi Movement–Haqiqi Chairman Afaq Ahmed is on bail in the case. The case of the MQM worker’s murder was lodged against MQM-H Chairman Ahmed and activists, including Asim. After hearing arguments, the court rejected Asim’s bail plea. Rehman was shot dead and his friend, Shahzad, wounded in an attack in June 2009 in the Nabi Bukhsh police limits.
