SC withdraws suo moto notice

F.P. Report

ISLAMABAD: Supreme Court Monday withdrew suo moto notice taken in murder case of Kohat’s Asma Rani after the arrest of accused Mujahidullah Afridi. Advocate Genera Khyber Pakhtunkhwa informed  to a three member bench headed by Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar that the accused had been arrested and the charge-sheet of the case had also been submitted before the trial court.

It is pertinent to mention here that Rani, a third-year MBBS student at Abbottabad Medical College, was in her hometown of Kohat on vacation when a man called Mujahidullah Afridi opened fire at her in January this year. Mujahidullah, who fled from the country after the incident, had been handed over to the Pakistani authorities via Interpol after being arrested from United Arab Emirates. His brother and co-accused Sadiqullah had already been arrested by the police.
