KARACHI - Additional District Judge (South) on Friday released a murder accused Saeed-ul-Haq after 38 years, as he was found innocent and not guilty now. According to his defence counsel Qadir Khan Mandokhail, 85-year-old Saeed-ul-Haq was arrested on January 20, 1971, by Artillery Ground police on charges of murdering an unknown person and was shifted to Karachi Central Jail. Qadir Khan said he made a visit to Karachi Central Jail in 1999 on behalf of Qadir Khan Mandokhail Trust, where he had learned that Saeed-ul-Haq has been jailed for the last many years without any FIR against him. Later, the Trust moved an application for his release to the Session Court. The police, on the direction of the court, had failed to produce any record against him. Whereas, the police official said that there was no case registered against him. After hearing the comments of the police, the court had granted the application for his release on bail in 1999, and since then he had been receiving medical treatment by the said Trust. Mandokhail said Saeed had suffered physical and mental illness during his imprisonment. The Trust informed the court after he was declared medically fit on which, the court finally ordered his release on Friday (September 4, 2009).
