ISLAMABAD, Aug 30: The anti-terrorism court (ATC) on Friday directed the police to provide it with the video footage of Jinnah Avenue stand-off.

The direction was issued by ATC judge Atiqur Rehman during the hearing of the post-arrest bail plea of Kanwal Sikander, wife of the gunman who staged the hours-long drama on August 15.

Since the media was not allowed into the courtroom, details of the proceedings were obtained from the lawyers.

Kalsoom Khaliq, the counsel for the arrested woman, contended before the court that her client had nothing to do with the stand-off.

She pleaded that Kanwal was not aware of her husband’s intention.

“She was thinking that her husband had brought her and the children to Islamabad for picnic.”—A Reporter
