Anis Qaimkhani’s bail plea accepted for hearing
Earlier, the court has rejected his interim bail plea on July 19 following which he was arrested in Dr Asim terror facilitation case from the premises of the court along with other politicians of Pakistan leading parties.
While hearing his case today, the ATC issued notices to the applicant and prosecutor including other concerned authorities.
They have now been summoned on July 27 by the court.
Meanwhile, the Karachi court has ordered to provide apt medical assistance and a B-class cell in prison to PPP’s Abdul Qadir Patel on his legal representatives’ request as they approached the ATC to file his bail application today.
Qaimkhani and Patel are in Karachi Central Jail along with MQM’s Abdul Rauf Siddiqui and Wasim Akhtar in the case pertaining to providing treatment and shelter to alleged terrorists in hospitals run by Dr Asim Hussain, a close aide of former president Asif Ali Zardari.
On Friday, the ATC permitted Qaimkhani’s arrest in another case registered during the year 1994 in Hyderabad Cantt in which he has been declared accused on the counts of firing and torching vehicles.
The Sindh High Court had already rejected bail applications of MQM leaders, Abdul Rauf Siddiqui and Wasim Akhtar.
