Update: Bail in car speeding case cancelled

Syed Imam Ali issued the orders after cancelling the bail granted earlier to Faisal Farooq in the main case. The court also cancelled the bail granted to three co-accused in another related case.

“I have not committed any crime. It was just an accident,” said Faisal Farooq.

Waseem said he would welcome any decision taken by the court of law. He said he would like to see the accused behind the bars. So far, he added, the police had not arrested the accused.

Cantonment investigation SP Babar Bakht said the accused went missing when the court announced the verdict. “We are conducting raids at all places where the accused possibly could be found. We will get him soon. We are bound to obey the court order.” He said all evidence had gone against the accused. “Our investigation has established that it was a fault on the part of the accused that caused the accident. He was overspeeding.”

    Thanks for sharing. Yesterday i.e; 11th dec,2006 Faisal Farooq appeared infront of judge in court his bail got cancel over there. Judge asked for 30 min break to give his decision. during this break Faisal Farooq n hi chacha ran away from court …… *remember his bail got cancel*….. so now police is looking for him in lahore n will be approaching his house n other place where they think he can hide……….. if he is innocent then WHY he ran away. Waseem’s cousin is my cousin n he was present there……

    Not directly related but below text taken from http://www.aslibaat.com

    “Reasons for Faisal’s Silence Faisal is silent because this propaganda will spread even further if he gets involved. His first effort to reach out to the family met with vicious and fabricated allegations of assault and threats. I think Faisals’ advisors are advising him well to keep away from this mud-slinging. He should be focusing on the case for now and ignoring the propaganda which can fizzle out faster then it escalated. PLEASE ACT RESPONSIBLY! ”

    Now who should act Responsibly….

    Sorry to say aisi website mai bhi launch kerdoun toh Will u ppl believe…..

    Faisal did not do himself any favors by absconding from the court.

    Naturally, he is scared out of his wits. There was never any doubt that FF was going to jail after all the media and public frenzy feeding. Still, it is good to see courts in action even if justice may have been swayed by the overwhelming public opinion.

    Damn that – After such occurance and campaign, even courts get biased., to pacify the public.

    FF did what is right. Do any of you believe that 30 Minutes recess of court was casual ??? Was it not INTENTIONAL to give enough time to accused for managing his ‘ESCAPE’

    Court knew, and the PESHKAR knew of decision earlier then it was presented, court recess was an opportunity provided to the FF.

    SAY WHAT ???

    By being away he can very well defend his case which the breaved family is fabricating and multiplying by several folds every day. My sympathies to the parents of the child,. Why can’t they accept it was an accident,. Every day in Karachi & Lahore many people get hurt and depart on road accidents.

    What is so special about this Mobilink employee ??????

    Sad to know the death of a baby.

    However we must not forget, it was an accident. It happened on road, between two cars.

    IT was not attempted murder, not a robbery neither some car snatching case.

    What has happened to masses, where is wisdom gone. What is so special in this accident ?? only because it is circulated via sms??? Non-sense, Bull shit. an average 3 people die everyday in lahore in road accidents.

    Seems like media is having joy ride, so is the may-be-link employees.

    Nonsense shall be noticed by the may-be-link, for misuse of their services by the employees for personal Interest.

    Am sure the greed and revenge toxicated attitude of Waseem will subside when the desired FIGURE is offered by Faisal and his aging father in 7 figures.

    Once the amount is agreed by Waseem, I can assure everyone reading this blog that out of court settlement will surface. Drumming it as Pardoned on Humanitarian Grounds.

    Case withdrawn plus life time free Confectionary from the accused.

    Accidents happen and thats that ? Is that what you are saying ?

    OK. I will agree with you on this.

    But why did the accused have to have the already greiving victim beat up and threatened. And use thier influence to prevent him from filing an FIR. That all goes to further incriminate the accused. He should not have resorted to threatening the victim and family.

    Asma Bibi,

    That is all media hype.

    If you are in Lahore, walk into the hospital and check the facts.

    Media is the most controversial commodity available on the planet earth, it is always biased, they make and break things acoording to their interests.

    Newspapers or Electronic they are all the same,

    The case of Respected DR. A Q Khan is a living example contemplated and twisted on the wishes of ……………….!

    Apparently the Lahori bloggers have nothing better to debate than the Nirala issue (or anything remotely associated with it).

    Folks..please move on! I am sure there are bigger issues and better topics in Lahore that need to be addressed.

  10. Bulla (unregistered) on December 17th, 2006 @ 1:57 am

    I agree with Razi! We Lahoris still owe couple of gifts to the world. Whatever happened to them? :S
