KARACHI: The Sindh Rangers filed a petition in the Sindh High Court (SHC) challenging removal of Special Public Prosecutor (SPP) in the case of former minister Dr. Asim Hussain, who is facing charges of alleged corruption and harbouring terrorists, Samaa reported Monday.

The Sindh government through a notification on Sunday appointed senior lawyer Nisar Ahmed Durrani as SPP to replace Mushtaq Jahangiri.

The change followed Rangers petition in the court filed against any possible change of SPP in the high profile case. Now after the move – which deepened row between PPP-led provincial government and the paramilitary force over the trial – might lead to release of Dr. Asim Hussain.

Today, Deputy Superintendent of Rangers (DSR) Inayatullah filed a petition in the court, stating that the Sindh government’s move “is illegal and based on malafide intention to facilitate the accused.”

The petitioner appealed the court to restrain the government from intervening in the trial.

Dr. Asim Hussain, a former federal minister, PPP leader and close aide of former president Asif Zardari, is facing charges of corruption and treatment of terrorists at his hospital.

He was detained on August 26 by officials of National Accountability Bureau (NAB) and Rangers in multiple cases of corruption and terror financing.

He spent three months in Rangers custody and later remained in police and NAB custody. – Samaa
