Eyewitness claims Intezar's murder was premeditated

KARACHI: In a new turn in the Intezar-murder case, eyewitness Madiha Kayani has claimed that the 19-year-old’s killing was premeditated.

Intezar Ahmed was killed after the police’s Anti Car Lifting Cell (ACLC) officials opened fire on his vehicle on Khayaban-e-Ittehad, DHA on the night of January 13.

In a recently released video message, Kayani — who was accompanying Intezar at the time of his murder — claims that the deceased had told her that his car had been marked and was being followed.

Kayani, stating that her life is in danger, appealed to the Rangers to provide her with security.

Prosecutor for inclusion of anti-terrorism clauses

The special public prosecutor in Intezar murder case on Monday had recommended to the trial court to include anti-terrorism clauses in the case.

The public prosecutor had recommended the inclusion of relative clauses of an Anti-Terrorism Act in the case after the police submitted the interim charge-sheet in court.

The police had also submitted their report pertaining to the acquittal of one of the accused, Abbas, for lack of evidence.
The court, which reserved its verdict on whether or not the charge-sheet is admissible and on the acquittal of accused Abbas, will announce its decision on February 28.
