KARACHI: As reported by the Dawn News on Friday, a sessions court on Thursday acquitted a provincial minister in an attempted murder case as both parties filed a compromise application. Sindh Labour Minister Ameer Nawab Khan along with others was booked in a case (FIR No 141/2005) registered under Sections 324 (attempted murder) and 34 (common intention) of the Pakistan Penal Code on the complaint of Mohammad Hanif at the Pirabad police station.
Both the parties reached an out-of-court settlement and filed the compromise application in court which stated that the complainant party had forgiven Ameer Nawab and Mir Sardar and it would not raise any objection if the court acquitted them in this case.
