10th suspect in Shershah mkt case acquitted
KARACHI: Ali Nawaz, the tenth person booked by the police for his alleged involvement in the Shershah scrap market shooting, was acquitted by Justice Sajjad Ali Shah on Tuesday.
The Administrative Judge of the anti-terrorism courts (ATCs) decided his plea for acquittal as the identification test failed.
This acquittal comes only a day after Muhammad Nafees, the complainant of the Shershah scrap market carnage case, in application to the ATC Administrative Judge expressed no confidence in the Special Investigation Unit (SIU) and appealed to the judge to transfer investigations of the case to the CID police.
The judge had put the special public prosecutor on notice for February 12 to decide the transfer application.
