An anti-terrorism court (ATC) in Karachi on Saturday indicted three Deobandi terrorists of Taliban-allied ASWJ/Lashkar-e-Jhangvi for Karachi airport attack in 2014.


On June 8, at least 37 people, including 10 terrorists, were killed after an all-night battle with Wahhabis and Wahhabis-allied Deobandi takfiri militants who besieged Karachi airport’s old terminal. The outlawed Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and a foreign Wahhabi outfit claimed responsibility for what was the first large-scale terrorist attack at the country’s largest airport in years.

The arrested Deobandis – Asif Zaheer, Nadeem, and Sarmad Siddiqui – were brought to the court, under tight security, where the case was heard. The ATC adjourned the case till March 14 and summoned the convicts to the court.

On March 4, ATC had sent the illicit weapon cases of two of the Deobandi militants connected with the attack to be tried in a Sessions court.

The Deobandi terrorists pleaded the judge of ATC-I to transfer their cases to regular courts. Their counsel claimed that the court had no jurisdiction to try these cases as they did not fall under the Anti-Terrorism Act.

Apart from the main case registered against the attack, the two Deobandi terrorists were also booked under Section 23(1)(a) of the Sindh Arms Act (which relates to possession of unlicensed weapons). The judge, Bashir Ahmed Khoso, heard the arguments and granted the plea.
