ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court (IHC) issued notices to respondents in a blasphemy case against Christian girl Rimsha Masih, seeking complete records pertaining to the case by September 28.
Chief Justice IHC issued notices to Station House Office Ramna Police Station, the investigation officer and complainant Hammad Malik in response to a petition filed by Rimsha seeking the cancellation of First Information Report (FIR) against her on August 16. The petition was filed through her counsel Abdul Hameed Rana.
Rimsha had maintained in her petition that the police had registered an FIR under Section 295-B at the behest of Malik a resident of Mera Jaffer which was completely mala fide.
He argued that three witnesses have already recorded their statement against prayer leader Khalid Jadoon Chishti, including Hafiz Zubair the moazzin of the mosque and two residents of that locality.
Rana maintained that the trial court had already granted bail to Rimsha and that the police in the interim charge-sheet had declared her not guilty and requested the court to cancel the FIR against his client.
He prayed to the court that until this case is solved the police should be directed to restrain from harassing his client.
