An anti-terrorism court in Lahore barred the authorities from arresting Shafqat, the father of the underage driver accused of killing six people of a family in a road accident in Lahore.
Shafqat was named in the first information report of the accident as he owned the vehicle his son was driving at the time of the accident.
The ATC approved interim bail of accused Shafqat till November 27.
On November 11, at least six people who belonged to the same family were killed in a road accident in Defence Phase 7 of Lahore.
The Lahore traffic police said that an underage driver killed six members of a family in a road accident in Defence Phase 7 last night.
A day later, the Lahore traffic police took into custody the underage driver involved in the accident.
After the road accident, the Lahore Traffic Police announced to file FIRs against underage drivers barring them from getting admission in educational institutions.
“We would take a lenient way of just giving underage drivers a challan, however, we have decided to file FIR against them to protect people from losses,” Chief Traffic Officer (CTO) Lahore Mustansar Feroze said in a video message.
