Families of two of the four men, who were killed during an accident caused by rash driving of Kashmala Tariq’s son, have pardoned him. The incident occurred on the evening of February 2 on Srinagar Highway, Islamabad.
According to the police, the families submitted separate affidavits to the court of Additional District and Sessions Judge (West), Mohammad Sohail Fazil, during the hearing of a plea for bail-before-arrest obtained by Kashmala’s son.
The investigators had requested the court to cancel the bail and sought physical remand of the accused.
However, the counsel for the accused brought the families of the two deceased, Farooq Ahmed and Adil, who submitted separate affidavits, stating they were the parents and legal heirs of the deceased.
The family members claimed that the Lexus was being driven by Kashmala Tariq’s driver, not her son, even though the family members were not present at the scene. Therefore, they do not want any legal action against her driver and son.
For the sake of Allah, we have no objection over the release of her driver and son on bail, quash the case and discharge them from the case.
Later, the court summoned the parents of the deceased one by one, and the affidavits were read before them and translated into Urdu to get their consent.
The court issued an order stating that the parents of deceased Farooq Ahmed and Adil Abbasi got their affidavits submitted.
The parents informed the court that they had pardoned the accused and had no objection if bail was granted to the accused.
According to the police, the affidavits from the families of the other two deceased would be required to revoke the case again the accused.
