In its ruling, the SHC ordered the trial court to deliver judgment in the case within three months. The ATC granted bail to former SSP Malir Rao Anwar on July 11, 2018, against a Rs 1 million surety bond.
The Supreme Court, however, rejected Anwar’s appeal, seeking to remove his name from the Exit Control List (ECL).
An apex court bench headed by the former chief justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar had dismissed the plea for the former cop, Rao Anwar.
Earlier on 13 January 2018, SSP Rao Anwar had stated that four leaders of the defunct Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) were shot dead at an encounter near Shah Latif Town in Karachi.
