Man sentenced to life for 2011 murder of police officer


March 14, 2018

An anti-terrorism court on Tuesday sentenced a man to life in prison for the 2011 murder of a police officer. The convict, Kashif alias Bukhari alias Ganjja, was on trial along with three absconding accomplices for the November 29, 2011 murder of martyred cop, Sub- Inspector Aleem Shah.

The four accused – Kashif, Shahid, Habib and Anwar – had fled after the murder and all of them had managed to evade arrest till 2015 when Kashif was apprehended. At yesterday’s hearing, the ATC judge ruled that the prosecution had managed to prove the murder charges against Kashif and sentenced the convict to life in prison.

Rape accused remanded

Investigators were given two-day physical custody of the three teenagers arrested on Monday for attempting to gang rape a nine-year-old girl.

The judicial magistrate for District East accepted the investigation officer’s (IO) request for the remand of the accused Ebad Raees, Shaharyar Naveed and Kashif Mehboob. The IO told the judge that the three accused, who are between 13 to 15 years old, had attempted to rape a nine-year-old girl in Gul-e-Rana Society.

He said a case against the three boys was registered by SSP Abid Qaimkhani after the victim’s father submitted an application to the Shah Latif Town police. An FIR was registered against them under Sections 363, 511 and 34 of the Pakistan Penal Code. The judge, while granting the IO two-day physical remand of the accused, ordered the officer to produce the victim at the next hearing to record her statement in court.  

Afghan robbers

The administrative judge of the anti-terrorism courts granted four-day physical remand of three Afghan men charged with over 100 burglaries in posh areas of the city.

The three alleged to be high-profile criminals were brought to the court amid heavy security. The court was told that Jeelani alias Javed, Abdul Khaliq and Juniad were involved in robberies, possession of illegal arms and police encounters.

The court directed the investigation officer (IO) to present a progress report till March 22. The cases against the three men were registered at the Darakhshan, PIB Colony, Taimuria and Nazimabad police stations.

Fake doctor

A judicial magistrate of District South sent a fake female doctor, Aisha, to prison on judicial remand till March 26.

The judge was informed that Aisha had been working in the gynaecology ward of the JPMC for one year, but she was not a qualified doctor and did not even have any certificate of a lady health worker.

The IO suspected that the woman belonged to a group involved in kidnapping newborn babies. The attorney for Aisha claimed that she had been working as personal assistant to Dr Samreen and Dr Samar and she had never claimed to be a doctor. The attorney prayed to the court to grant bail to Aisha.
