Gujranwala: Kamoki power protest: 32 accused of torching train granted bail
GUJRANWALA: The Anti–Terrorism Court–II ordered on Saturday release of 32 accused allegedly involved in torching a train at Kamoki railway station during a protest against power loadshedding against Rs100,000 surety bonds each. Counsel for the accused pleaded during the hearing of the bail plea that his clients were not present on the scene when some miscreants burnt the ‘Babu Train’ some two months ago and that Wazirabad railway police implicated them in the case without any justification.
The judge, Wamiq Javed, accepted the plea and ordered release of the accused on surety bonds worth Rs100,000 each.
The Wazirabad railway police and Kamoki city police had registered a case against around 1,000 people for attacking railway station and torching the train during an anti-outages protest and those arrested were sent to jail on judicial remand.
