KARACHI:


The former home minister, Zulfiqar Mirza, pleaded an anti-terrorism court (ATC) on Monday to change the investigating officer of his cases and direct the police to record his statement at home or in court.


Mirza approached the ATC-I through his principal counsel, Ashraf Samoo, contending that he had no confidence in the officer investigating the three cases against him. Samoo, who is also a former president of the Malir Bar Association, told The Express Tribune that his client was receiving death threats. “Mirza is willing to cooperate with investigators but cannot move around the city. He will record his statement at home or at the court only,” he said.

Mirza has been booked under charges of attempting to murder, rioting, looting and damaging public property under the Anti-Terrorism Act at a Badin police station.

He is currently on an interim bail in all the cases till May 19.
