February 22, 2015

Karachi
A court on Saturday issued a non-bailable warrant for the arrest of the investigation officer in Baldia Town fire case.
Additional District and Sessions Judge (West) Noshaba Kazi has taken notice of a statement by Advocate Shazia Hanjra, who had resigned as the key public prosecutor, claiming that the IO had not extended his cooperation and not provided her with written investigative reports on the case. The court took serious note of the absence of the IO and fixed March 7 as next date of hearing.
The court also issued a directive to withhold the salary of the IO and ruled that the health certificates of the absent accused should be presented before it at the next hearing. Earlier, Special public prosecutor Shazia Hanjra informed the court that she had separated herself from the case. Hanjra had claimed she was not provided due security and the IO had not updated her about the legal status of the case.
