RAWALPINDI Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) Rawalpindi No. 1 Monday released a woman Shazia, who was arrested for her alleged role in 2003 twin suicide attacks on the convoy of former president Pervez Musharraf. The ATC Judge Malik Muhammad Akram Awan absolved Shazia Mubashir from the charges of helping in planning and carrying out suicide attacks on former president Musharraf on December 25, 2003 near Jhanda Chichi, Rawalpindi, as she had already been tried by a Field General Court Marshal (FGCM). The learned judge acquitted Shazia, as the court accepted her application under Section 265-K of Criminal Procedure Code. Advocate Col. (Retd) Muhammad Akram, lawyer for Shazia, maintained that she and her husband Rana Muhammad Naveed were arrested by Army in early 2004 and were tried with six other persons by FGCM in Attock Fort. The military court acquitted her, he said. In her application, she had asserted that under criminal laws, she could not be retried to face offence on same grounds and facts after Civil Lines Police again arrested her on August 24, 2005. Last year Shazia obtained post-arrest bail from the Lahore High Court, as the higher court confirmed she was tried and acquitted by the military court. Separately, the court rejected bail applications of three persons accused of being involved in conspiracy of assassinating former prime minister Benazir Bhutto. The accused Aitzaz Shah, Hasnain Gul and Rafaqat Hussain had moved the court seeking bail on the argument that they could not be kept in jail for indefinite time, as the federal government had launched reinvestigation casting doubts about the already concluded investigation.
