LAHORE: An anti-terrorism court (ATC) in Lahore issued non-bailable warrants against Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) Secretary General Khurram Nawaz Gandapur and five other party leaders and declared them proclaimed offenders on Tuesday.

The court was hearing a petition filed against the leader.

Lahore’s Faisal Town police had lodged a case against seven nominated persons, including general-secretary Khurram Nawaz Gandapur and Sheikh Fayyaz and CSO Altaf Shah, eight unidentified gunmen and hundreds of unidentified workers accusing them of attacking policemen during the Model Town clash between police and PAT activists on June 17 which had claimed the lives of at least 14 persons.

The accused persons had failed to appear before the court despite several summons issued against them.

ATC Judge Rai Ayub Khan Marth issued the warrants over the recommendation of the investigating officer in the case and ordered for the arrest of all accused persons.
