Application for medical checkup on behalf of 41 accused prisoners of Youhanabad Case

On August 21, 2017 CLAAS through its legal advisor Mr. Tahir Bashir moved an application for medical checkup on behalf of 41 accused prisoners of Youhanabad Case before the Court of Mr. Sajad Ahmed Judge Anti-Terrorism Court Lahore. CLAAS lawyer took the stance in his application that there is no proper medical treatment in Kot Lakhpat Jail which is evident from the fact that an under trial accused namely Indriyas Ghulam died due to non-providing of proper medical treatment as he was suffering from disease of Tuberculosis (TB). It was prayed that said Indriyas Ghulam was living with other co-accused and there is every apprehension that the other co-accused might be affected with the same disease. The Judge after hearing the arguments allowed the application and issued direction to the Superintendent Jail for medical checkup of 41 accused confined in Kot Lakhpat Jail Lahore. Before this CLAAS moved an application for the medical checkup of Ilyas Masih who is confined in the jail in the same case and his application was also accepted.
