Three-year-old girl’s murder case transferred to ATC

By Ishaq Tanoli

KARACHI: A judicial magistrate on Thursday transferred the kidnap-cum-murder case of a three-year-old girl to an anti-terrorism court.

Police constables Bashir Ahmed and Noor Mohammad allegedly kidnapped Sana on July 3 when she was playing with her friends near her home in Korangi, killed her and dumped the body into a manhole near the FTC building.

The prosecution said the body was recovered on a lead given by the suspects.

Adviser to the Sindh chief minister Sharmila Farooqui had filed the transfer application and the court had earlier reserved its order on the application for July 9.

When the matter came up for hearing before the judicial magistrate (east), Malik Akhtar Hussain, on Thursday, prosecutor-general of Sindh Shahadat Awan submitted an application in the court stating that after a thorough examination of the prosecution papers, he had concluded that the case fell within the purview of the Anti-Terrorism Act.

He added that he had directed the investigation officer to insert [in the FIR] Section 6 (b) punishable under Section 7 of the ATA, and requested the court to transfer the case to an anti-terrorism court.

The judicial magistrate allowed the request and transferred the remand papers and other documents of the case to the administrative judge of the ATCs.

A case (FIR 331/2009) was registered against the suspects under Sections 364 (kidnapping or abducting in order to murder), 302 (premeditated murder) and 34 (common intention) of the Pakistan Penal Code on the complaint of the victim’s uncle, Abdul Hashim, at the Zaman Town police station. The investigation officer will produce the suspects before the administrative judge of the anti-terrorism courts in Karachi for remand on Friday.
