Arrest Warrants of Accused Acquitted on Surety Bonds Issued

ISLAMABAD: The Lahore High Court (LHC) Rawalpindi bench on Tuesday issued arrest warrants of the accused Aitazaz Shah and Sherzaman who are acquitted on surety bonds.

A two-member bench comprising Justice Sadaqat Ali Khan and Justice Sadiq Mahmood took up appeals challenging the August 31, 2017 verdict passed by an anti-terrorism court (ATC) in the Benazir Bhutto case.

During the hearing, the judges expressed displeasure over authorities for failing to present a report about five accused persons who were acquitted by the ATC and directed the CPO to place on record the report on next hearing.

The bench also summoned the five accused and adjourned the hearing until Oct 19.
