Pak court clears Bhatti murder suspect of assassination charges

Rawalpindi , Thu, 23 Feb 2012 ANI

Rawalpindi, Feb 23(ANI): An anti- terrorism court here has cleared a suspect of the charges of assassinating former Pakistan Minorities' Minister Shahbaz Bhatti.


ATC Special Judge Rana Massod Akhtar released Abid Malik following a testimony delivered by Bhatti's close relative.


Bhatti's family had earlier alleged that Malik killed the former over a property- related matter.


But Bhatti's relative, Tahir Naveed Chaudhry, informed the court that the family had neither suspected Malik's involvement in the murder nor had nominated his name in the case.


The Express Tribune quoted Chaudhry, as saying that the police had falsely implicated Malik in the case.


A police officer Rukhsar Mehdi had earlier submitted a report to the court stating that police had failed to establish a link between Malik and any militant organisation.


Police said they had checked relevant records and discovered that Malik was in Singapore on the day of the murder.


Malik was arrested at the Lahore Airport after his return from Dubai on February 14. (ANI)
