Dr Asim Hussain arrest case: IG Sindh fails to submit reply
The Sindh High Court held a hearing on a petition filed against the powers granted to Rangers under section 11EEE. The court got angry at IG Sindh for no submitting a reply. The judge directed IG Sindh to submit a reply by April 2.
“IG Sindh is busy due to the PSL matches which is why he has not been able to submit a reply,” claimed his representative in court.
“Is IG Sindh always present in the ground that he does not have the time to submit a reply?” asked Justice Aftab Gord.
Justice Amjad Sahito remarked that the petitioner wanted to know on what grounds was Dr Asim kept in custody for 90 days.
“Rangers arrested Dr Asim via the powers they were granted under the government’s Anti-Terrorism Act,” said the Rangers lawyer.
Dr Asim Hussain was arrested by Rangers in 2015 on charges of sheltering and providing terrorists’ medical treatment.
Dr Asim’s arrest was challenged by his wife in court.
