Rawalpindi: 3 men involved murder case acquitted
RAWALPINDI: Additional District and Sessions Judge Muhammad Iqbal Malik here on Thursday acquitted three men allegedly involved in a murder case. Giving the benefit of doubt, the court acquitted Zafar Iqbal, Zubair Ahmed and Mubashir Ali as police failed to prove murder charges against them. The Kallar Syedan Police had registered a murder case under Section 302 against the accused in 2006. Adnan Khurshid had submitted an application against the accused that they killed his brother Khurram Iqbal over a minor dispute.
Meanwhile, Additional District and Sessions Judge Rana Muhammad Ali issued non–bailable arrest warrants against the Westridge Police Station SHO and ordered his production before the court on October 21.
Muhammad Mansoor had submitted an application under Section 22-A against the SHO. He alleged that the police official was giving protection to people involved in a fraud case.
According to the complainant, he had sold a house to Muhammad Azam who gave a cheque for Rs2.9 million which was dishonoured by the bank. He said that he went to the Westridge Police Station for registering an FIR regarding dishonouring of the cheque but the SHO refused to do it. The court issued several notices to the SHO to appear before the court but he did not obey the orders of ASJ due to which the court issued his non–bailable arrest warrants.
