ATC reserves judgment on Amir Khan’s Hajj permission plea

KARACHI: An Anti-terrorism court (ATC) on Saturday reserved its verdict on Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) leader Amir Khan’s Hajj permission plea, which will be pronounced on 17th August.

Amir Khan’s counsel had filed an application in court and requested to grant permission to his client to go to perform Hajj as no other case was pending against him before the trial court.

Ranger’s law officer told the court that permission required from Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) and Ministry of Interior to leave the country.

He argued that documents presented by Khan’s counsel can be obtained from anywhere as there is no authenticity of these documents.

After hearing the arguments from both sides, the ATC-II judge reserved it judgment which will be pronounced on 17 August.
