MARDAN: The Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) here on Tuesday handed over an accused, Sabir Mayar, to the police on a four-day physical remand in the Mashal Khan lynching case.

The police produced Sabir Mayar before the ATC Judge Mohammad Younas Khan. The police prayed the court to give the accused in police remand. Sabir Mayar had surrendered to the police at the office of the District Police Officer (DPO) Mian Saeed Ahmad on Monday. He had been declared an absconder in the case. One suspect Asad Katlang is still at large.

It may be noted that on April 13, last year, a mob of students, employees of Abdul Wali Khan University, Mardan and some outsiders lynched Mashal Khan, a student of Journalism and Mass Communication Department, after accusing him of blasphemy. On 7th February, the Anti-Terrorism Court Judge, Abbottabad, Fazal Subhan announced the decision of Mashal lynching case at the camp court at the Central Prison Haripur.
