Court suspends Mahmood Khan Achakzai's arrest warrant

QUETTA, APR 27 /DNA/ – A local court in Quetta on Saturday suspended the arrest warrant of Pashtunkhwa Milli Awami Party (PkMAP) Chairman Mahmood Khan Achakzai till next hearing on May 31.

The investigation officer apprised the court that the PkMAP chief did not comply with the warrant by not appearing before the court in connection with the first information report (FIR) against him.

The judicial magistrate suspended Achakzai’s arrest warrant and fixed the date for next hearing on May 31.

The warrant for the politico’s arrest was issued a day earlier and the police were directed to arrest and produce him before the court on April 27.

The local administration had lodged a case at the Gawalmandi police station against Achakzai on March 11 for interference in the public affairs during a raid on his house.

On March 4, the district administration refuted the claims of the raid at the senior politician’s house, saying that it just got an empty government land vacated near Achakzai’s house on Quetta’s Quarry road.

Quetta Deputy Commissioner Saad bin Asad had said Achakzai  illegally occupied the government land by putting up walls around it. He confirmed that a person, who was guarding the land, was arrested for pointing weapons at an assistant commissioner and interfering in the state affairs.

Former Balochistan caretaker information minister Jan Achakzai, in a hurriedly called press conference, also denied the claims of a raid at the PkMAP chairman’s house, saying the district administration of Quetta recovered a government land.

He said lands in the city’s outskirts were recovered and the campaign against illegal land occupation would continue in the future as well. The district administration took action on a landlord’s complaint and got a plot vacated in front of the veteran politician’s house, he added.=DNA
