LAHORE - An anti-terrorism court (ATC) on Friday issued non bailable arrest warrants of former DIG (operations) Rana Abdul Jabbar and former DCO Lahore Capt. (Retd) Muhammad Usman over no-show in Model Town case.

The court had summoned both the officials but the duo failed to appear in person; ATC-II Judge Ejaz Awan took serious note of their absence and issued their non-bailable arrest warrants.

The court also directed CCPO Lahore to arrest them and produce before the court on next date of hearing, scheduled for today.

The court had already indicted 116 police officials including former inspector general of police Punjab Mushtaq Sukhera and district management officials on a private complaint, filed by Idara Minhajul Quran, the sister organisation of the Pakistan Awami Tehreek, for their trial on charges of killing its workers during 2014 Model Town incident.
