Mingora: Sufi`s sons acquitted in terrorism case
MINGORA: A special anti-terrorism court acquitted here on Thursday three sons of Maulana Sufi Mohammad, chief of outlawed Tehrik Nifaz-i-Shariat-i-Muhammadi, for lack of evidence.
A case regarding acts of terrorism and killings was registered against Sufi Mohammad`s three sons, Abdullah, Abdur Rehman and Fazlullah, at Saidu Sharif police station on Feb 16, 2008 under anti-terrorism act. The case was under process at ATC Gul Kadda. Prominent advocate, Sajjad Anwar, represented the accused before the court.
ATC judge Asim Imam after hearing the arguments acquitted Sufi Mohammad`s sons on the grounds that the government had failed to produce sufficient evidence against the accused. The accused are still in police custody and facing some others cases.
