KARACHI: The Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) on Saturday rejected the bail application of former petroleum minister Dr Asim Hussain in a case relating to providing refuge and medical treatment to terrorists.

However, the prosecution has yet to prove all the charges of corruption and provisioning of medical treatment to the injured terrorists. On Saturday, Dr Hussain was produced in the ATC, which heard the case. Anwar Mansoor Khan, the defence lawyer, informed the court that all the other accused had been released on bail except his client and hence he should also be released. He contended that no doctor was authorised to refuse to treat any injured as he could face two-year imprisonment. Moreover, he said the medical bills produced before the court did not mention that terrorists were provided medical treatment. “No terrorist can be judged by the doctor or anyone else because his identity did not tell about his activities,” he argued.
