RAWALPINDI - Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) Rawalpindi No.1 Wednesday sent an accused allegedly involved in the murder of former MNA Maulana Azam Tariq to Adiala Jail on 14-day judicial remand. The ATC Judge Malik Muhammad Akram Awan sent the accused Hammad Riaz Naqvi to Adiala Jail after Golra Police did not seek further physical custody of the suspect as he had already been in the physical custody of police for 14 days. As per details, the accused was arrested by Karachi police and was handed over to Golra police two weeks ago to be interrogated in connection with the October 6, 2003 murder of Maulana Azam Tariq leader of banned religious outfit Sipha-i-Sahaba in Islamabad. It may be mentioned here that the court had already acquitted two persons Muhammad Ali and Mudassir Ali in the case a few days ago and two other men were exonerated in 2006 in the same case. Meanwhile, the ATC-I judge reserved verdict on the application of Maulana Abdul Aziz former Chief Cleric of Lal Masjid in five different cases asking for removal of terrorism charges. The court set March 25 (today) as the date to announce the decision in five cases; two with Kohsar police and three with Abpara police regarding deleting of terrorism charges. The accused through his lawyer Shaukat Aziz Siddiqi has maintained before the court that the allegations against him in these five cases were not serious enough to be tried under terrorism laws.
