Sher Jahan's name being removed from terror watch list

MINGORA (SWAT): The counter-terrorism department on Wednesday informed Peshawar High Court Mingora bench (Darul Qaza) that the name of social activist Sher Jahan Sahil from Chitral has been forwarded to the home department from removal from the Schedule IV of the Anti-Terrorism Act (ATA).

The reply was filed by the CTD in reply to an earlier direction by the court, according Rahimullah Chitrali Advocate, the counsel for Mr Sahil. 

The social activist from Garam Chashma was placed under the watch list over a year ago. He filed a petition in the PHC through his lawyer later last year, according to court records available with ChitralToday.

On March 17 this year, the court had ordered the government departments concerned to submit the relevant record, if any, in a sealed envelop on the basis of which the petitioner had been put under the terror watch list.

When the court took up the petition again on Wednesday, no record was submitted, and the court was informed that the name of the petitioner had been forwarded to the home department for removal from  Schedule IV.
