ATC acquits PTI’s Yasmin Rashid in Jinnah House attack case

An anti-terrorism court (ATC) in Lahore acquitted Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Dr. Yasmin Rashid in the Jinnah House attack case.

ATC on Saturday announced the verdict and rejected the police’s plea seeking physical remand of the PTI leader.

According to the court order, the investigating officer had requested 14-day physical remand of Dr. Rashid for photogrammetry, voice match tests, and recovery of mobile phones.

The order stated: “… perusal of record reveals that neither Dr. Yasmin Rashid is nominated in the FIR nor involved through supplementary statement and she was summoned in the case on the disclosure of a co-accused which has no evidentiary value in the eye of the court.”

It added that no “incriminating material” was found against Rashid and ordered her release.
