ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court (SC) on Tuesday rejected the bail plea filed by UC Chairman, Abdul Rahim Shah, accused in Irshad Ranjhani case, who was shot dead on February 8, 2019, in Karachi’s area of Bhains Colony.
A two-member bench comprising Justice Mazhar Alam Mian Khel and Justice Qazi Amin took up the plea. The court after reviewing the plea binned it. “Bail cannot be given as the plea was filed late.”
The lawyer of the accused can contact the trial court for the bail, if they want, the SC ruled in its short verdict.
