Three people charged with kidnapping Nazim Jokhio

KARACHI: Sessions court on Friday framed an amended charge against three guards of interned Pakistan Peoples Party lawmaker Jam Awais in the Nazim Jokhio murder case.

The court set the case for January 12 and called the prosecution witnesses to record their testimony against the defendant.

Two days ago, the state prosecutor had moved an application pleading to the court to indict the lawmaker`s three guards under Section 365 of the Pakistan Penal Code for kidnapping the victim before his brutal murder. Under it, no out-of-court settlement can be reached in the offence of kidnapping.

The judge fixed Jan 12 as the date of hearing on the applications filed by the victim`s mother Jamiat, brother Afzal Jokhio and widow Shireen seeking validation of their `out-of-court settlement` with lawmaker Awais and co-accused.

Along with their pleas, the trio had also filed affidavits stating that they had pardoned the MPA Awais and others without accepting blood money.

The court would consider a request made by the National Commission for Human Rights to participate in the murder trial proceedings on the next hearing date.
