QUETTA: A Balochistan High Court (BHC) bench upheld its previous decision on Wednesday and rejected the bail application of Abdul Majeed Khan Achakzai.
Achakzai, a member of the Balochistan Assembly, was arrested from his residence in June on charges of crushing to death a traffic police sergeant at a busy intersection in Quetta.
A division bench of the BHC, comprising Chief Justice Muhammad Noor Meskanzai and Justice Hashim Kakar, had taken up the bail application of Achakzai last week.
The chief justice rejected the bail application, while Justice Hashim Kakar granted him bail.
The case was then referred to the referee judge of the BHC, Justice Ejaz Swati, who heard the plea last Friday and reserved judgment which was announced on Wednesday.
