Karachi: White Corolla suspect acquitted in another case
KARACHI: Mohammad Ali Hajiano, more commonly known as the ‘White Corolla rapist’, was acquitted in another rape and robbery case due to the lack of evidence on Thursday. He is wanted in over 30 other cases of robbery and rape. Hajiano and his friend Umair Khan were charged with committing robberies and raping women in Defence and Clifton during 2008-09.
They were produced in the court of Additional District and Sessions Judge Javed Ahmed Kerio on Thursday, but were absolved of all charges in one of the cases as the wife of the complainant, Kamal, and his daughter, did not recognise the accused. They claimed they could not see the faces of the robbers due to darkness.
The judge, in his verdict, announced that the victims of the case could not recognise the suspects and there was no reason to detain the latter in prison. The trial of the suspects was being held inside the jail’s judicial complex due to security concerns.
