Jammu court acquits two youth after 11 years

Srinagar, June 08, 2013 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, two Kashmiri youth facing charges of allegedly working for a Pakistani security agency were acquitted by a court after prosecution failed to prove charges against them. The youth, Bashir Ahmed Butt and Basharat Ahmad, were acquitted by Principal Sessions Judge Jammu.

They were arrested in May 2002 while they were facing trial since 2006 after a charge-sheet against them was filed in the court.

While acquitting them, the court observed that none of the witnesses, who reportedly prepared the disclosure statements, were produced by the prosecution.

The accused, the court said, were facing trial since May 22, 2006, but it is strange that despite seeking number of opportunities, the prosecution has failed to produce its witnesses though all of them were their own police personnel.
