KARACHI: The father of Naqeebullah Mehsud on Monday filed an application for transfer of case of his son’s murder to another court.

He adopted that he has lost confidence in the ability of Special Judge Anti-Terrorism Court-II Khalida Yaseen to conduct a fair trial.

Naqeeb’s father Mohammad Khan and his lawyers also boycotted court proceedings and complained that the ATC judge had unduly favoured the prime accused, former SSP Malir, Rao Anwar.

The application said that the judge repeatedly failed to take action against the undue favours granted to Anwar as he was the prime accused in the case brought to court with full protocol and without handcuffs and a prisoner’s uniform.
