Human organs transplant accused sent on remand


The Cantt judicial magistrate on Monday sent sevens people, including Dr Hanif, Nadeem, Imran, Mushtaq, Sagheer, Mubashir and Ali involved in an illegal business of human organs transplant to jail on judicial remand until July 25.
The accused are involved in a case of illegal transplant of human organs and were arrested red-handed on July 1 from a rented house near Soling Road in Ameeruddin Park where they were running a clinic for over one year under supervision of Dr Hanif. Earlier, the North Cantt Police presented the accused before the magistrate after completion of their nine days physical remand requesting that the accused are no more physically required by police for investigation so the court might send them to jail on judicial remand. The court directed police to submit the challan of the case by the next date of hearing.
Separately, an accountability court directed the Camp Jail superintendent to make necessary arrangements for the medical check-up, including MRI test, of former Bank of Punjab (BoP) president Hamesh Khan and submit a compliance report in court on July 19.
The court issued the orders during hearing of a petition filed by Hamesh, seeking court directions for his comprehensive medical check-up from senior doctors. According to details, Hamesh, the main accused of the BoP loan scam, had filed a petition submitting that he was not feeling well in jail and required a complete medical check-up from a team of senior doctors.
He said that he was not provided sufficient medical facilities, especially for treatment of back ache. The court had sought reply on Hamesh’s application from National Accountability Bureau (NAB) authorities. Authorities, replying to the application, said that NAB has no objection on the petition filed by Hamesh and the court might issue directions for treatment of the accused.
Also on Monday, an accountability court issued arrest warrants of Saifullah, co-accused in the BoP loan scam until July 30. Saifullah is one of the seven accused who were summoned by the accountability court for July 11. Other accused including Muhammad Idress, Umer Farooq, Farooq Mughees, Iftikhar and Sarfraz appeared in court. Saifullah failed to comply with court orders on which his arrest warrants were issued.
An accountability court on Monday extended the judicial remand of Hamesh Khan, Seth Nisar, former honorary consulate in Kazakhstan and Sheikh Afzal, owner of Haris Steel Mills, involved in the BoP loan scam until July 25. US nationality holder Hamesh is accused of issuing Rs 6.20 billion in loans to Sheikh Afzal by abusing his powers.
Nisar owes Rs 930 million to the BoP, which he got illegally as loans in connivance with high-ups of the bank. He has already paid Rs 400 million to NAB during physical remand while NAB recovered Rs 50 million in a raid at his farmhouse near the Wahga Border last year. The court, extending the remand, directed NAB authorities to submit the BoP loan scam reference by the next date of hearing.
