ISLAMABAD: An anti-terrorism court on Friday ordered the capital’s chief commissioner and the Inspector General (IG) of Police to provide details of properties belonging to two high-profile proclaimed offenders implicated in the attack on a former Islamabad senior superintendent of police by next week.
ATC judge Shahrukh Arjumand on Friday issued notices to the commissioner and IG of Islamabad Police to submit details of properties owned by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan and the chief of Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) Dr Tahirul Qadri which are located in Islamabad, Lahore and Mianwali by the hearing of the case – scheduled for October 13.
The directions came after the Secretariat police failed to provide details of the properties despite repeated court directions to do so issued since July.
“You are not taking any pains [to secure the details] … you are taking the court’s order lightly,” the judge remarked when the police told the court on Friday that the relevant departments have been asked to provide details of the properties owned by the suspects but yet to receive a reply.
