KARACHI: An anti-terrorism court (ATC) deferred on Thursday the verdict on the bail applications of two suspected co-accused in the Hamza murder case.

At the previous hearing, the ATC-III had reserved its verdict on the bail applications but simply deferred it to Thursday’s hearing. Hamza, a 17-year-old student, was gunned down allegedly by the security guard of another teenager after they got into a heated argument outside a restaurant in Defence Housing Authority on April 27.

The counsel of the complainant said that Muhammad Idrees and Mushtaq, the two drivers of the accused teen’s family, had moved an application seeking release on bail. Special Public Prosecutor Abdul Maroof said the court adjourned the hearing till December 14, adding that arguments have been completed on the bail applications and verdict is expected.
