A court on Monday indicted Balochistan MPA Majeed Khan Achakzai in the case of a police sergeant killed in a traffic accident in Quetta in June this year.

Sessions Judge Rashid Mehmood framed charges against the accused, to which Achakzai pleaded not guilty. The case was heard amid tight security.

The Balochistan MPA allegedly ran over traffic sergeant Haji Attaullah on June 21. The police initially lodged a first information report (FIR) against unknown accused. Achakzai was arrested after a video of the accident went viral on social media.

The judge on Monday also ordered the witnesses in the case to appear before court in next hearing.

The accused was also produced before the same court in another murder case. However, witnesses in the case could not appear before the court today. Subsequently, both cases were adjourned until September 27.
