ATC reserves verdict on MPA Achakzai’s bail plea


QUETTA: The judicial remand of Balochistan MPA Abdul Majid Achakzai—whose speeding car killed a traffic sergeant last month—was extended by three days on Wednesday.

The anti-terrorism court (ATC) hearing the case also reserved its verdict on Achakzai’s bail plea.

Traffic policeman Haji Attaulla succumbed to injuries after Pakhtunkhwa Milli Awami Party MPA Achakzai allegedly ran him over while he was performing his duty near Quetta’s GPO Chowk.

Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Mian Saqib Nisar on June 28 took suo motu notice of the incident and summoned a detailed report from the Balochistan police.

It is crucial to mention here that after reports of a comprise with the MPA surfaced, the deceased traffic policeman’s son denied any such agreement.
