ATC Reopens Shahbaz Taseer Kidnapping Case

ATC reopens Shahbaz Taseer kidnapping case

LAHORE, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 10th August, 2016) : An anti-terrorism court (ATC) on Wednesday reopened Shahbaz Taseer kidnapping case and summoned the accused for August 22. ATC-I Judge Azizullah Kalo passed the orders while allowing an application filed by one of the alleged accused, Usman.

The accused Usman had requested the court to reopen the case proceedings as Shahbaz Taseer had been recovered. The court had consigned the case to record after granting bail to four alleged accused Abdur Rehman, Farhad, Moazzam and Usman in 2014. Shahbaz Taseer, son of slain former Punjab Governor Salman Taseer, was recovered in March 2016, nearly five years after his abduction in 2011 from Lahore.
