LAHORE - An anti-terrorism court (ATC) Wednesday granted bail to two persons accused of killing two men during hearing of a land dispute case by a Sessions Court judge.

During the hearing of their land dispute, members of one group had opened fire on men of the other group, killing Zeshan and Ali, and severally injuring another two of their companions.

Claiming innocence, the accused – Malik Liqat and Haji Shareef – in their bail applications requested the court to grant them bail, saying the police were raiding at different places to arrest them.

The ATC judge granted the accused pre-arrest bail until June 29 against surety bound worth Rs100,000. The court also summoned the petitioner of the case and police record on the next date of hearing.
