RAWALPINDI - The Anti Terrorism Court (ATC) Rawalpindi Number 2 Judge Syed Pervaiz Ali Shah has recorded the statement of former Station House Officer (SHO) Police Station (PS) Kohsar Hakim Khan in former governor Punjab Salman Taseer murder case here on Saturday. During the trial held at Adyala Jail, the prosecution produced its 14th witness Inspector Hakim Khan out of total 44 witnesses of the murder case of Salman Taseer. On the questions of defence lawyer, the witness Inspector Hakim Khan said the murder of former governor Salman Taseer was the individual act of Malik Mumtaz Hussain Qadri while governors meeting with Aasia Bibi in the jail and later issuance of his statement was the reason of this murder. He said that no one motivated or instigated Qadri religiously. He said that he was deployed for guarding former governor Salman Taseer as per security plan approved by SP Security and Qadri did not get himself appointed the task. No person was sent from PS Kohsar for the security of governor, he added. ATC No 2 Judge Syed Pervaiz Ali Shah, after noting down the statement of the witness, adjourned the hearing of the case till September 10, 2011. Talking to media outside Adyala Jail, the defence lawyer Raja Shujah-ur-Rehman denounced the abducting of Shehbaz Taseer, son of late governor Salman Taseer, from Lahore by unknown kidnappers. He said that Malik Mumtaz Qadri has nothing to do with this kidnapping case or has no links with Taliban or any other banned outfit. He said, We never asked Salman Taseers family to withdraw the case against Qadri rather we prayed to God for the save recovery of Shehbaz Taseer. Earlier, the murder of former federal minister for minorities Shahbaz Bhatti was also tried to be pinned with Qadri but at the end it was proved that there was some property dispute. Shahbaz Taseer kidnapping case seems similar to Bhattis case as late Salman Taseer had left big property behind him, Raja Shujah stated.
