Nehal Hashmi’s case to be heard by anti terrorism court
On Friday, 7th July 2017, a sessions court transferred the case against Senator Nehal Hashmi to an anti-terrorism court after charges of terrorism were added to the FIR filed against the senator.
The case against Nehal Hashmi was being heard by a district and sessions judge in Karachi when the police issued a challan against the senator in which it was stated that charges of terrorism have been included in the on-going case.
After the chalan was reviewed by the judge, he ordered the case to be transferred to ATC.
The former PML-N leader had been booked last month for allegedly his usage of threatening language against the judiciary and public servants during a speech to party workers in Bahadurabad.
Earlier on Friday, 7th July 2017, a request in the Supreme Court had been filed by the senator which asked that the investigations against him be stopped immediately.
The request says that “The proceedings of the criminal case should be stopped,” it further added that the Attorney General Ashtar Ausuf cannot remain the prosecutor in the case.
The SC late last month, had announced that it would frame charges against Hashmi on 10th of July.
The senator had received the wrong kind of attention after a video started circulating in which he was apparently seen warning the individuals who were conducting a Supreme Court-sanctioned investigation, in the video the senator is saying that they will be “taken to task” for grilling the premier’s family.
The remarks of the senator were directed towards the Supreme Court appointed joint investigation team (JIT) which has been probing the Sharif family’s business dealings abroad.
Just hours after the senator’s incendiary remarks had made the national headlines, membership of the former PML-N senator had been suspended and a show-cause notice was issued to him.
Furthermore a suo motu notice of the video had been taken by the chief justice and had summoned the senator to appear before the special bench which is overseeing the implementation of the Panama Papers verdict.
Subsequently, the senator had also tendered his resignation from his seat in the Senate; however, after a few days, the senator had withdrew the resignation citing the “extraordinary circumstances” that compelled him to take the step.
