December 6 2008

KARACHI:

The hearing of a constitutional petition filed for return of Dr Aafia Siddiqui from US custody was adjourned to a date to be fixed later by the office of the court here on Friday by a division bench of the Sindh High Court (SHC) comprising Chief Justice Anwar Zaheer Jamali and Justice Dr Qamaruddin Bohra.

When the petition filed by human rights activists Muhammad Imran and Intekhab Alam Suri came up for hearing, the bench inquired from the petitioner that whether he has complied with all objections raised by the office of the court.

Iqbal Aqeel, counsel for petitioner sought a week’s time to comply with the same at which the bench put off further proceedings.

The petitioner prayed to the court to direct Pakistani authorities to arrange safe return of Dr Aafia Siddiqui from US prison where she was lodged after being shifted from the Guantanamo Bay prison and charged with attacking US military personnel.
