A division bench of Lahore High Court on Monday sought further arguments on bail applications of two men accused of killing a Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) worker in Faisalabad on December 8.
The bench directed their counsel to appear on February 23 for further arguments. Earlier, counsel for Pervaiz Akhtar and Usman said his clients had not been involved in the killing and police did not have any evidence of their involvement. He said that a case had been lodged against them on the basis of video footage and there was not enough evidence to show his client’s involvement in the killing. Ata Muhammad, brother of the PTI worker, sought time to engage a counsel to oppose the bail application.
The bench accepted his request. Muhammad had earlier challenged the report of a joint investigation team which exonerated State Minister for Water and Power Abid Sher Ali and former law minister Rana Sanaullah.
