Plea against Youhanabad

hit-and-run driver’s bail

The Lahore High Court on Thursday issued notice to Station House Officer of Nishter Colony Police in a petition challenging the bail granted to a woman driver involved in crushing three men to death and leaving 11 others injured during her hurried escape from among the angry protestors of Yohannabad on Ferozepur Road.

Hameed Masih filed the petition submitting that the trial court granted bail to Maryam Safdar and did not decide the question of the suspect’s motive behind hurried escape and killing of three persons and leaving many others injured. The petitioner prayed to the court to set aside the decision of the trial court.

After hearing initial arguments, Justice Aalia Neelum of the LHC issued notice to SHO Nishtar Colony and adjourned the hearing till three weeks.
