RAWALPINDI - A Division Bench of the Lahore High Court (LHC), Rawalpindi, accepted bail application of a university student Syed Asad Hussain Shah allegedly involved in a terrorism case here on Wednesday. The bench, comprising Justice Abdul Shakoor Pracha and Justice Muhammad Akram Qureshi, also directed the Investigation Officer (IO) of the case to put his name on Exist Control List (ECL) till the completion of trial. According to details, the bench of LHC granted bail to Syed Asad Hussain Shah, a student of Bachelor of Science in Telecommunications at a HEC-accredited private university in Islamabad, against the two surety bonds each worth Rs one million and directed the Civil Lines Police to make sure his name was put on the ECL. The defence counsel Shaukat Aziz Siddiqui argued in the court that the involvement of Asad in the case No 341 registered on May 10, 2007 under sections 120-B (criminal conspiracy) of Pakistan Penal Code, 4, 5 of explosives act and 7,9,11 and F-L Anti Terrorism Act (ATA) was not well established as he was arrested from his house in G-7/4, Islamabad, on the night of March 10 in the presence of the neighbors. He refuted the claim of the police that the accused along with two other suspected terrorists was arrested from a place near Ayub Park on May 10 and maintained that the father of the accused registered a complaint about the abduction of his son with area police station and wrote letters to President, Prime Minister and Chief justice wanting the release of his son. The lawyer also stated that the police allegedly recovered only a sectarian book from his custody as a suicide vest was recovered from another accused Khalid Saifullah with whom the police had not established the link of his client. He told the court that the ATC rejected the bail plea of Asad on the ground that the investigations had yet to be completed and now the investigation had been completed making the case of his client string for bail. The investigation officer and the Assistant Advocate General maintained in the court that the man was involved in a terrorism case and was part of a conspiracy to kill high officials of the government, therefore, he should not be granted bail. Meanwhile, Justice Muhammad Akram Qureshi served a show-cause notice on SHO Westridge Police and directed him to appear in the court on Friday along with the record of a case about the arrest of a man on fake cheque charges. Syed Yousaf Khan advocate had moved a pre-arrest bail application of Amir Hasanat who was accused of giving an amount of Rs 340,000 cheque that was bounced by the bank. It was on Tuesday that the Westridge Police arrested the accused and did not let him go despite the lawyer submitted a certificate with the police explaining that the bail plea of Hasnat was pending with LHC and he could not be arrested till his plea was rejected.
