More arrest warrants issued for Yar Rind

Former federal minister was barely out of hot waters after the court approved his bail in kidnapping case, when Balochistan police issued his warrants in eight other cases.
Balochistan police handed over to Islamabad police the warrants for the arrest of Q-League leader from Balochistan.
It should be mentioned here that apex court granted the bail to the former federal minister from Balochistan Yar Muhammed Rind against two surety bonds worth five lakh rupees in kidnap case.
The apex court directed the concerned authorities not to arrest him again unless his involvement is found in any other case.
Deputy Prosecutor General Azam Khattak told the court that the prosecution record could not be retrieved owing to the lack of time.
Heading a three-judge bench hearing Rind’s appeal, Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Iftikhar Muhammed Chaudhry stressed on the status of a penalty delivered in absentia, adding, “We discouraged the in-absentia punishment in the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) verdict.”
Counsel for Rind, advocate Akram Shaikh said the case against his client is the result of tribal hostilities and owing to the same enmity, Rind could not attend the trial court all this meantime.
Sheikh pleaded the court to transfer the case to some other location, as his client’s life is in jeopardy in Balochistan.
It is pertinent to note here that Leader of the Opposition in the Balochistan Assembly Rind was arrested on Thursday (November 1) at the behest of the Supreme Court as he appeared before the court.
It may be noted here that the trial court and Balochistan High Court (BHC) awarded life imprisonment to Yar Muhammad Rind in a murder case. He had not been appearing in the provincial courts for many years. However, he had filed a petition in the apex court against his imprisonment order.
During the previous hearing, the three-member bench of the court, hearing Rind’s appeal, ordered the arrest of Sardar Yar Mohammad Rind as per the requirements of law.
