Karachi: An anti-terrorism court on Tuesday indicted Lyari gang-war leader Uzair Baloch in the kidnapping and murder case of a trader.

A heavy deployment of Rangers was seen at the ATC during the hearing.

In the courtroom, Judge Fazil read out the indictment for Baloch.

According to the indictment, Baloch is accused of kidnapping of Abdul Samad for ransom. He demanded Rs1 million as ransom but killed the trader despite receiving Rs70, 000.
