KARACHI - Judicial Magistrate (South), Syed Nadeem Hussain Shah on Monday admitted Sindh National Front (SNF) Chief, Mumtaz Ali Bhutto, to bail against a solvent surety of Rs. 50,000/-. Mumtaz Bhutto, first cousin of late Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and a former Chief Minister of Sindh, was arrested by Frere Police Karachi on charge of involvement in an attack at the office of Sindhi local daily on Dec 28. He was arrested from his Larkana residence on Saturday and brought to Karachi on the night between Saturday and Sunday. According to police, the SNF workers, on the directives of Mumtaz Bhutto, had attacked the office of a local Sindhi newspaper for not publishing his column on the eve of the first death anniversary of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto on 27th December. The chief of Sindh National Front (SNF) was admitted to National Institute of Cardio-vascular Diseases (NICVD) the same day after Justice Gulzar Ahmed of Sindh High Court (SHC) passed an order to admit him in hospital for heart ailment. Earlier, the court had rejected a petition from police for his custody and physical remand till January 12. Mumtaz Bhutto's counsel, Naeem Qureshi Advocate, submitted that government was politically victimising his client under false cases. He further pointed out that the FIR registered against Mumtaz Bhutto did not mention his involvement in attacking the newspaper office. He also submitted a bail plea, which was accepted by the court. Our Monitoring Desk adds: Mumtaz said he would have an FIR lodged against the assassination of Ms Benazir Bhutto. Talking to media after acceptance of his bail plea by the local court, he said he respects the journalists and termed the case against him on charges of attacking an office of a newspaper as false and baseless.
