Rao Anwar gets bail in Naqeebullah cases

Earlier, the court reserved verdict on the bail application submitted by the five accomplices of Anwar in the Naqeebullah murder case.

Advocate Mansoob had also argued that his client was framed on the basis of ill-intentions.

The case was B-classed but the court never gave a verdict on it, Advocate Mansoob had said, maintaining that when there was no court order terming the case as B-class, and questioned on what basis the investigation officer had registered the case.

    This is wrong and this is an insult to Justice. Rao Anwar was living in a luxury Bunglow with every facility while he should have been in jail, now this man who tried to fled the country is granted bail. Can any one imagine the pain Naqeebullah’s family is going through and how the people in Waziristan native are feeling. As a result of this one sided decision from A.T.C we may see some crude reaction from the victimized party.Recommend
