KARACHI: A court has issued non-bailable warrants for the arrest of Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P)'s leaders, including its chief Dr Farooq Sattar, in a case pertaining to a demonstration outside the Chief Minister House.

The court issued non-bailable arrest warrants over the perpetual failure of the MQM-P's leaders to turn up before it and face charges. It directed the investigation officer to ensure compliance of the warrants against the accused persons who are on the run.

Karachi's Mayor Waseem Akhtar and Sindh Assembly's opposition leader Khawaja Izharul Hassan have been exempted from personal appearance in the court.

Civil Lines police had registered a case against MQM-Pakistan leaders for staging a protest outside the CM House on June 5 last year against shortage of water in several areas of the city. They have been accused of creating a law and order situation by holding a protest in the red zone area.

Meanwhile, an anti-terrorism court sentenced three suspected terrorists to 26 years in prison in a case pertaining to attempted murder, kidnapping for ransom, and possession of illicit arms. The court found Samad alias Imran, Dilshad and Aurangzeb said to be associated with a proscribed organization for attempted murder, kidnapping for ransom and possession of illegal weapons.
