Uzair Baloch to be transferred to Mitharam Hostel, directs ATC

An Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) on Monday, directed Lyari gang war kingpin Uzair Baloch to be transferred to Mitharam Hostel.

Abid Zaman Advocate – Uzair Baloch’s lawyer, had filed a petition in ATC seeking Uzair Baloch’s transfer to Mitharam detention facility citing lack of basic facilities and services at Karachi Central Jail.

In his petition, Uzair Baloch has contended that he doesn’t even have a razor to shave along with the lack of basic necessities at Karachi Central Jail where he is currently incarcerated.

The court has directed Uzair Baloch to be transferred to Mitharam Hostel which will then be declared as a sub-jail, meanwhile jail superintendent has been instructed to ensure the provision of all basic facilities to the prisoner.

It is to be noted that Uzair Baloch was indicted by ATC on July 7 for the kidnap and murder of businessman Abdul Samad.

Uzair Baloch is under trial for 16 murders, including one of Arshad Pappu, who alleged perpetrator behind the murder of Uzair Baloch’s father
