Rauf case hearing adjourned till 16th
RAWALPINDI: Anti-Terrorism Court judge Safdar Malik on Wednesday adjourned the hearing of a case against British national Rashid Rauf till April 16.
Rauf is suspected of involvement in a plot to bomb trans-Atlantic passenger aircraft. The Pakistani police arrested Rauf for possessing a chemical used for making explosives and forged travel documents.
Rauf was produced in court after two months. The court had directed the Adyala Jail authorities at the last hearing to present Rauf’s detention orders, but the authorities did not comply with the court’s order. Meanwhile, Habib has moved the Rawalpindi bench of the Lahore High Court stating that Pakistan and Britain were finalising a secret deal for the extradition of his client to the UK in return for six Baloch leaders who have taken refuge there. The lawyer has also demanded that the court ask the government to give Rs 50,000 to Rauf’s family every month. staff report
