ISLAMABAD: The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) pleaded before the Islamabad High Court (IHC) today against a trial court’s order acquitting all the accused in Axact fake degree case.
Axact’s counsel Raja Rizwan Abbasi and Deputy Attorney General Raja Khalid Mahmood presented arguments before a two-member bench comprising Justices Athar Minallah and Miangul Hasan Aurangzeb.
Abbasi explained before the bench that the respondents did not get any summons for today and are thus not in court.
Meanwhile, Mahmood pleaded the bench to nullify the suspect’s acquittal as the additional district and sessions court judge had accepted receiving a bribe for exonerating the accused.
The hearing was then adjourned until Feb 22 after the court sought a response on the current status of the judge.
In October 2016, the additional district and sessions court hearing the case against the company in Islamabad had acquitted the accused for lack of evidence. –Web Desk
