Swear to God, I didn’t kill anyone, Uzair Baloch told court
July 13, 2020
KARACHI (92 News) – Lyari gang-war leader Uzair Baloch has denied all murder charges, saying, “I swear to God, I didn’t kill anyone.” During an appearance in an anti-terrorism court (ATC) on Monday, he said that he has not recorded any confessional statement under Section 164 (Power to record statements and confessions) of the Code of Criminal Procedure. The judicial magistrate must have made a mistake, he claimed. “I swear to God, I didn’t kill anyone,” Baloch told in court. The court then asked him if his statement will stay the same if he approaches the high court. “Your statement was recorded before judge and you signed on your confessional statement,” the court remarked, questioning that tomorrow will you deny from the trial of case? More than 16 cases, including the murder of gangster Arshad Pappu, who is accused of killing Baloch’s father, were heard by the court. The hearing has been adjourned till the last week of July after the prosecution lawyers failed to attend the hearing.
