Dawar, Wazir’s plea for transfer of bail hearing rejected

Peshawar (Agencies): The Peshawar High Court (PHC) on Monday rejected the MNAs Mohsin Dawar and Ali Wazir’s petitions seeking transfer of bail hearing from Bannu to Peshawar.


PHC Chief Justice Waqar Ahmed Seth heard the transfer plea of Pashtun Tahaffuz Movement (PTM) leaders.

After hearing the arguments, the court rejected the plea.

Dawar was arrested as he was accused of leading an assault on a security check post in North Waziristan. Sources said Dawar was presented before an anti-terrorism court (ATC) after his arrest, which granted his eight-day remand. Subsequently, he was shifted to Peshawar.

Ali Wazir was already in police custody over charges of leading the May 26 attack on Kharqamar check post in the Boya area of the tribal district.
