Hope you guys know why the Police had to hurriedly free him from the mob and take him away.

Basically he was secured from leaking any information regarding which Jail Warden released him for the task of terrorism (in this case hurling explosives) - and what was the money that the police got to allow this incident to take place.

A friend of mine once shot the robber on the rear of an escaping pair who had just snatched mobile phones from his shop. The person on the back fell off the bike injured. As soon as the Police arrived, they shot him dead. Guess why - cuz the suspect might have given evidence that Police is behind 98% of the crimes taking place in Karachi and the rest of Pakistan. If it weren't for the corrupt Police officials in Pakistan, the terrorism and robberies would have never gotten out of control the way it has now.

People of the area has done a wonderful job. Soon Court will release him for want of evidence despite the complaint of poor and innocent people. That is why I have no sympathy with injured Judge but feeling bad for the families of Rangers and Police men who laid their lives unnecessarily to safe guard the Judge.
