Court orders Davis’ trial in prison

A session court in Lahore on Tuesday ordered the Raymond Davis’ trial to be held in prison.

The detained US national Raymond Allen Davis, who the America insists is a member of diplomatic mission and, therefore, enjoys immunity, was charged with the murder of two Pakistani men. Faheem and Faizan, residents of Lahore, were fatally shot dead by Davis at Mazang Chowk last month.

The Punjab government, citing security reasons, filed a plea, on Tuesday, requesting Davis’ trial to be held in prison in the future.

The Additional District and Sessions Judge Yousaf Ojla, later, accepted the government’s request and ordered the next hearing of the case to be held in Kot Lakhpat prison on February 25.
