Lahore, Mar 11(ANI): The Lahore High Court has dismissed an application moved by Imran Haider, brother of Lahore shootout victim Faizan Haider, to make him a necessary party in the Raymond Davis immunity case.

CIA contractor Davis was arrested by police after shooting dead 22-year-old Faizan Haider and 26-year-old Faheem Shamshad on January 27 in Lahore, allegedly in self-defence.

As Imran’s application came up for hearing, LHC Chief Justice Ijaz Ahmad Chaudhry observed that it was not necessary for the applicant to become a party to the case because the court could not act on mere apprehensions.

The applicant’s counsel withdrew the application after this observation, the Daily Times reports.

Imran’s counsel had submitted in the application that many petitions had been filed before the LHC about this case, and the court had fixed March 14 for the hearing of the petition challenging the possible diplomatic immunity to Davis.

Imran said that he was an aggrieved party in the case, as Davis had killed his brother along with his friend, and as such he was a necessary party. (ANI)
