Hyderabad: ATC grants bail to senior civil judge in couple murder case
HYDERABAD: A judge of Anti-Terrorism Court on Monday granted pre–arrest bail to Mohammad Saleem Qambrani, senior civil judge of Jacobabad, for a sum of Rs100,000 in a double murder case of a newly-wed couple. The judge’s counsel Pir Bux Bhurgari advocate argued before the court that the contents of the FIR lodged against Mr Qambrani were self-contradictory. The FIR had been lodged without seeking permission from the court for nominating his client who was a sitting senior civil judge, he said. He said the case had several legal flaws, police papers were not submitted to the court and wrong sections were cited in the case, which did not fall in the purview of ATC.
The FIR could be divided into three parts but its contents were conflicting, he said. The court granted pre–arrest bail to the accused that was earlier granted protective bail by the Larkana circuit bench of the Sindh High Court.
