ATC sends Dr Asim on four-day police remand

KARACHI: The Administrative Judge of Anti-Terrorism Courts Justice Naimatullah Phulpoto on Thursday remanded PPP leader and close Zardari aide Dr Asim Hussain in four-day custody of the Sindh Police in a case pertaining to treatment and sheltering of terrorists.During the hearing of arguments, a conflict arose between the Sindh Prosecutor General (PG) Shahadat Awan and the Rangers Sindh prosecutor.

The Rangers prosecutor opposed the four-day detention, saying Rangers had asked for a 14-day detention in the remand paper submitted in court, but the Sindh PG had crossed it out and asked for a four-day detention instead.

The Rangers prosecutor argued that since Rangers was the petitioner in the case, the court should grant 14-day remand. But after hearing the arguments, Justice Phulpoto decided to grant police four-day custody of the PPP leader.
