Sialkot: Cops acquit 3-year-old ‘murderer’
SIALKOT: The Sialkot District Police Officer (DPO) Bilal Siddique Kamiyana has acquitted a three-year-old girl accused of murder and has discharged the case.
DPO Siddique said that the Kotli Syed Ameer police had recently implicated a local villager Bashir’s three-year-old daughter Mehvish in a murder case.
“The child was listed as the primary suspect on the report submitted by the petitioner. The report was submitted several months ago and police were looking for the culprit,” the DPO said.
Siddique said that the matter was brought to his attention after the girl’s father Bashir made an appeal to him personally to look into the charges.
“The police didn’t take her name down even after I took her to the station and they saw that she was only a toddler,” Bashir said.
The DPO finally looked into the details of the case and acquitted the child by declaring her innocent and discharged her from the case.
