Zain murder case: court reissues non-bailable warrants of four witnesses
Judicial Magistrate Akram Azad today heard the case against Kanju regarding illegal possession of weapons.
The court had issued non-bailable warrants against the four witnesses, Ghulam Mustafa, Imran, Imtiaz and Idrees, for not appearing before the court. However, the witnesses still did not comply the court order that led the court to reissue their arrest warrants.
The court also directed SHO South to arrest and present Mustafa Kanju before court on May 14. The case of illegal possession of Kalashnikov, used in Zain’s murder, had been registered in the police station South.
Mustafa Kanju, son of former federal minister Siddique Kanju, was accused of killing 16-year old youngster named Zain on April 2nd, 2015. He had confessed his crime of killing the teenager on April 5th, 2015.
Kanju had fled abroad after an Anti-Terrorism Court had acquitted the prime suspect in Zain murder case on 27th October, 2015 after all the complainants had retracted from their statements. This court order was challenged by the Punjab government on 30th December, 2015.
The court accepted Punjab government’s appeal for hearing and issued notice to the prime suspect in the murder case.
