ATC asks police to delete baby’s name from FIR

SHEIKHPURA: An anti terrorism court on Wednesday directed Sheikhupura police to delete name of a 13-month-old boy from a case registered against some persons on charges of creating law and order situation at polling station.

Father of the minor-Aqdas Khalid appeared before the court holding the ‘suspect’ in his arms. He told the court that City Police of Sheikhpura lodged an FIR against persons involved in tearing ballot papers and manhandling polling staff during the election in the district.

He said the police also nominated his minor son in the FIR and attributed an active role in the case. He asked the court to quash the FIR registered against his minor son.

A police official however told the court that the minor was not nominated in the case but an adult of the similar name.
