An anti-terrorism court (ATC) in Gujranwala on Tuesday indicted three accused including the shooter Naveed in the case of gun attack on Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) founder and former premier Imran Khan in Wazirabad during long march.

According to the details, the ATC Gujranwala heard the Wazirabad case on Tuesday and indicted accused Waqas and Tayyab Butt along with main accused Naveed in the case.

The charge sheet was read out to the accused in the court. The accused denied the charges fixed on them in the charge sheet.

The court adjourned the hearing till May 25 after the indictment.

Yesterday, an Anti-Terrorism Court in Wazirabad acquitted brothers Ahsan Nazir and Mudassir Nazir in the case concerning the attack on former prime minister Imran Khan.

The court found that the allegations against the accused could not be substantiated, leading to their release after months of incarceration.

The food point, which was alleged to be the site of the attack's planning, had been closed since November 22. Affidavits from the owner and chief chef of the establishment, alongside statements from a trial witness, indicated that the accusations were unfounded.

The witness's affidavit stated that their previous statement was given without solicitation, and they denied visiting the implicated location on the day in question.

Considering all presented evidence and the lack of concrete proof, the court decided to acquit the brothers under section 265 D, with Ahsan Nazir having served five months and Mudassir Nazir four months in detention.
