Amir Khan Sent to Prison Till June 25
KARACHI: The anti-terrorism court (ATC) passed an order on Friday to send Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) leader Amir Khan to prison on judicial remand till June 25.
The order comes a day after Khan’s three-month detention period came to an end.
According to initial information, a first information report, FIR No 176/15 was registered at the Azizabad Police Station on a complaint filed by a Rangers official Riaz, who charged Khan for harbouring criminals and providing them protection.
According to reports Khan made a request to ATC for a B-class cell during his period in prison which the court accepted.
Further, Khan had been detained by Rangers when the paramilitary force raided MQM’s headquarters nine-zero on March 11, 2015.
During the raid, Rangers claimed to have arrested nearly half-a-dozen target killers including Faisal Mehmood alias Mota, who was condemned to death by a court over his involvement in the murder of television journalist Wali Khan Babar.
