Karachi: New warrants for Lyari body, BLA men
KARACHI: A judicial magistrate reissued on Thursday warrants for the arrest of two leaders of the banned People’s Aman Committee and an alleged member of the proscribed Baloch Liberation Army in explosive and illicit weapons cases. The court has been issuing non–bailable warrants for PAC head Uzairjan Baloch, Noor Mohammad alias Baba Ladla and Rehmatullah of the BLA for a couple of months. However, the police have yet to arrest them. When the matter was taken up for hearing before a judicial magistrate (west) on Thursday, the investigating officer again informed the court that the suspects had not been traced.
The court reissued the warrants with the direction to apprehend and produce them before Aug 28.
The crime investigation department claimed that it detained Saifullah Bugti, Shamsuddin Bugti and Abdul Ghaffar Bugti, alleged BLA militants, in Shershah on May 7 and seized explosive material and illicit weapons from them.
The suspects were charged and PAC leaders were named as absconders on the basis of confessional statements of Saifullah and Abdul Ghaffar, who told a magistrate that Rehmatullah had been supplying arms and ammunition to them from Balochistan for long which they delivered to Noor Mohammad and Uzair Baloch.
A case was registered against the suspects under Section 4/5 of the Explosive Substance Act, and the CID has individually booked the suspects under Section 13-D of the Arms Ordinance.
