ATC issues notice on Mirza’s pleas


KARACHI: An Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) on Monday issued notices to Special Public prosecutor for 13th May 2015 over pleas filed by Dr Zulfiqar Mirza.

The counsel of former Home Minister Sindh and rebel leader of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Dr Zulfiqar Mirza filed two pleas requesting the court to appoint honest Investigation officer of the case and allow Dr Mirza to record statement before the court or at his residence.

The lawyers of Dr Mirza’s counsel requested the court that their client could not visit police station which is located in Jamshed Quarter as he has life threats. It is pertinent to mention here that Mirza was summoned on Sunday by Senior superintendent (SSP) of special crime branch to appear at police station as he was required for investigation.

Dr Mirza has been charged of damaging a police station, closing shops forcibly and attempted murder during protests in Badin. This controversy had started on May 3 when Dr Mirza arrived at Badin police station when he allegedly hustled security personnel for trying to arrest and registering an FIR against his supporter.

Earlier on Saturday ATC had granted Dr Mirza pre-arrest bail in three cases against the surety bond of Rs 100,000.
