ISLAMABAD: An anti-terrorism court (ATC) Wednesday adjourned the hearing of Mumbai attack case till April 17 without any proceedings.
ATC Judge Kausar Abbas Zaidi resumed the hearing whereas the prosecution sought adjournment as it was revealed in the court that report of calling of 27 foreign witnesses from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs was not yet received, the court accepted and adjourned the hearing.
It is worth mentioning that IHC had issued dictations to ATC for recalling already testified or leftover witnesses again at the Federal Investigation Agency’s (FIA’s) petition, seeking recalling of witnesses which was earlier rejected by the ATC.
The hearing of post-arrest bail application of five accused in the case was also adjourned.
It may be mentioned that IHC had turned down FIA request to halt the Mumbai attack case proceeding at ATC.
The hearing will be resumed on April 17 whereas the ATC had also summoned the witnesses on the day.
