Pak court charges Sufi Muhammad with murder and treason

Peshawar, Tue, 19 Jul 2011 ANI

Peshawar, July 19(ANI): A Pakistani anti-terrorism court (ATC) has indicted Sufi Mohammad, chief of the outlawed Tanzim Nifaz Shariat-e-Muhammadi (TNSM), in a case concerning the killing of 11 police and Frontier Corps (FC) personnel registered over 16 years ago in Swat.


"Today, the court framed murder and treason charges on Sufi Mohammad and his 23 followers," the Daily Times quoted defence lawyer Majeed Adil Majeed, as saying.


"He and his followers broke the law by attacking a police station, killing 11 people, including nine paramilitary and two policemen, and attacked government buildings, which is treason," he added.


According to a first information report, TNSM activists had attacked the Kabal Police Station in 1994 resulting in the killing of 11 persons, including two policemen and nine FC personnel.


Mohammad was arrested in July 2009 for encouraging violence and terrorism.


In August 2009, police announced that he had been charged with sedition, aiding terrorism and conspiracy.


The trial of Mohammad in different cases of terrorism is being conducted inside the Central Prison Peshawar for security reasons.


Earlier, in January, Muhammad had denied to an anti-terrorism court that he had any links to the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), and said that he only sought enforcement of sharia in Malakand. (ANI)
