imran-farooq-suspects

RAWALPINDI: An Additional District and Session Judge on Monday handed over three suspects in Dr Imran Farooq murder case to the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) on seven-day physical remand.

Muazzam Ali, Mohsin Ali and Khalid Shamim were presented before the Additional District and Session judge as the Anti-terrorism court judge Syed Kosar Abbas Zaidi was on leave.

Earlier the FIA sought 15-day physical remand of the suspects from a duty judge but the counsel for Muazzam Ali argued that the judge was not authorized to grant the remand.

The judge then referred the matter to Additional District and Session Judge Raja Khurrram Ali, who after listening to arguments from both sides handed over the suspects to the FIA on seven-day remand.

The suspects would now be presented before the ATC judge on January 4.
