Osama murder: ATC judge expresses anger over not taking pictures of crime scene

ISLAMABAD (92 News) – An anti-terrorism court (ATC) granted on Wednesday a seven-day physical remand of the arrested five policemen in the murder case of 22-year-old Osama Satti.

During the hearing, the ATC judge expressed anger over not taking pictures of the crime scene for inquiry purpose and reprimanded the investigation officer.

The investigation officer of the case presented all accused, named Muddassir, Shakeel, Mohammad Mustafa, Saeed Ahmed and Iftikhar Ahmed before the ATC on completion of their previous remand.

“Was the youngster shot from behind? the ATC judge asked the IO, to which the latter responded in the affirmative. To another question, the IO said five bullets hit Osama from behind.

The IO replied that he has not taken such a photo, drawing ire of the court. “This means you are all hand in gloves,” the judge remarked, and asked the cop to place on record the photo so that it can be made part of the case trial.

The court expressed displeasure over the IO for failing to take photos of the crime scene. The court also ordered to include ASI Saleem who sent a voice message by wireless about a robbery bid.
