Lahore High Court bars extradition of Mullah Baradar

LAHORE: The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Friday prohibited the extradition of five Afghan Taliban leaders and summoned the provincial and federal governments on March 15.

The arrested militants include Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar who is considered the right hand man of Afghan Taliban chief Mullah Mohammad Omar.

Other arrested Afghan Taliban included Mullah Saleem, Maulvi Kabeer, Mullah Mohammad and Ameer Muavia.

The five were arrested from Faisalabad and Karachi a few weeks ago.

On February 25, a petition was filed in the LHC by Khalid Khwaja against the arrest of the five Afghan Taliban leaders. Khwaja requested that the five not be deported to any foreign country.

The case was being heard by LHC Chief Justice Khwaja Sharif. — DawnNews
