ISLAMABAD: Leader of the opposition in the Balochistan Assembly Yar Muhammad Rind was arrested on Thursday from the Supreme Court’s building, DawnNews reported.
Rind was in Islamabad for the hearing of his plea against the verdict of an anti-terrorism court in Quetta of handing him life imprisonment.
The court had awarded life imprisonment to the Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) MPA, his son Sardar Khan Rind and four other people for allegedly kidnapping a man on June 28.
ATC-II Judge Aminuddin Bazai had also imposed a fine of Rs 50,000 on each of the accused who had kidnapped Imam Din from Sibi in 2009.
They were also sentenced to an additional 10-year term for deliberately avoiding appearing before the court. The court issued perpetual warrants for their arrest. Another accused, Mohammad Din, was acquitted for lack of evidence.
