KARACHI: Former National Assembly speaker Fehmida Mirza feels optimistic as her husband will appear before an anti-terrorism court, Aaj News reported.
While addressing the media on Friday, she said that all the FIR’s filed against her husband had been registered on the request of one person. Mirza avoided disclosing the name of that person.
She also added that, by choosing her as National Assembly’s speaker Pakistan People’s Party did not do her a favor as she was already eligible for the post.
Mirza said that she felt optimistic, hoping that the court will do justice to her husband. She also praised the role of media.
As part of the security arrangements all roads to the ATC have been blocked with barricades.
Three cases have been registered against the former member of PPP and ex-home minister Zulfiqar Mirza, as he is alleged of attacking a police station and using force to shut down markets in Badin district. The cases are registered under the anti-terrorism Act 1997.
However, Sindh High Court on Friday granted Mirza with protective bail in two cases for 10 days.
Two more cases have been filed against Mirza for homicide and abusing on duty public servants.
