GILGIT: An anti-terrorism court (ATC) in Gilgit-Baltistan (GB) has issued a non-bailable arrest warrant against Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Chief Altaf Hussain.
The development comes as a result of multiple First Information Reports (FIRs) that were registered in the province against the MQM chief. ATC-1 of GB was holding a hearing on the case on Wednesday.
The FIRs were registered under sections related to treason and rebellion against the state of Pakistan. A total of nine FIRs were registered by concerned citizens of GB.
Earlier this week, a three-member bench of the Lahore High Court (LHC) was constituted to assess the maintainability of a case against MQM chief for his earlier remarks about the Pakistan Army.
