ATC rejects bail plea of Dr Asim

Dr Asim

KARACHI: An anti-terrorism court Saturday rejected a bail plea filed by former petroleum minister Dr Asim Hussain in a case about allegedly providing medical treatment to militants in his private hospital.


The court announced a short order on the plea after which Dr Asim asked the court if the militants were really provided medical aid in his hospital.

The ATC had reserved a verdict on the plea after hearing arguments from defence and prosecution sides earlier this month.
