KARACHI: The administrative judge of anti-terrorism courts (ATC) directed on Saturday the police to present chalan in Irshad Ranjhani murder case by tomorrow (Monday). The investigation officer appeared before the court and said that till the report of joint investigation team (JIT) is submitted, time should be granted for the submission of chalan. He argued that a new JIT had been formed by the home department and more time was needed to present the final chalan. The court accepted the plea.

May 12 case

An ATC adjourned the hearing of four cases pertaining to May 12 tragedy, due to the leave of the judge. Karachi Mayor Wasim Akhtar and several others had been indicted in the cases. The court has already declared the 14 absconding suspects as proclaimed offenders. The cases against the suspects were registered at Airport Police Station.
