Karachi: SIU gets physical remand of accused in illegal arms case
KARACHI: Judicial Magistrate (West) Afzal Roshan on Thursday allowed physical remand of a man facing charges of possessing illegal arms and explosive material till August 18. The judge heard details of the charges against Saleem alias Khushak and directed the Special Investigation Team (SIU) to complete investigations by Saturday. The court heard that apart from possessing illegal arms and explosive materials, the accused was also involved in several other crimes.
Answering a query from the judge, an SIU team said some accomplices of the accused were absconding and that the accused and his absconding accomplices committed most of the crimes in the Sharea Faisal police remit.
The team took the plea that it was necessary to know about the whereabouts of the absconders and Saleem could help them out in this regard.
