SUKKUR:


The Sindh High Court (SHC) Sukkur bench has directed a physically impaired person to file an application in the anti-terrorism court (ATC) to quash an FIR registered against him by the Kandhra police over his alleged involvement in a sectarian clash.


Jahangir and 11-year-old Sajjad, filed a constitutional petition in the SHC Sukkur bench on Tuesday, stating that both had been falsely implicated in the FIR, registered by the Kandhra police against 26 persons.


The petitioner’s lawyer told the court that one of his clients was physically impaired while the other was a minor. Both had, however, been implicated in the FIR over a sectarian clash. After hearing the petition, the court directed the lawyer to file an application in the ATC to quash the FIR against both the petitioners. The judge also directed the police not to harass the petitioners, adding that if the ATC did not quash the FIR, the case should be brought before the SHC again.
