LAHORE: An anti-terrorism court (ATC) in Lahore on Tuesday charged Tehreek-i-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) chief Khadim Hussain Rizvi and others in a case regarding violent protests instigated by the hardline religious party following a Supreme Court verdict acquitting Aasia Bibi last year. Judge Arshad Hussain Bhutta announced the charges brought against the religious-political leaders. Strict security arrangements had been made for the proceedings. A total of 26 suspects — including Rizvi and TLP patron-in-chief Pir Afzal Qadri — were issued copies of the challan. Some of the suspects appeared in court today along with counsels Tahir Minhas and Nasir Minhas.
