Court acquits PaK national, directs govt to deport him
Srinagar, May 6: The Chief Judicial Magistrate here has acquitted a Pakistan Administered Kashmir national and directed the Government to deport him to his native place immediately.
In 2008 police arrested Shazad Khan of Tralkhud Muzaffarabad. Police said after investigation, Shazad disclosed he was associated with LeT and was involved in militant activities.
Police filed FIR against him in the police station Rajbagh under FIR 84/2008 under section CLA/13 ULA, 2/3 IEMCO.
During investigation the accused admitted he had entered the State through Atta border in Kupwara, but didn’t admit of being involved in militancy related activities.
The police presented challan against him under IMCO and listed six witnesses. But only two witnesses were produced during several hearings of the case for past two years.
The two prosecution witnesses said they have not recovered anything from the accused and had no prior information about him.
“During enquiry he disclosed he is resident of PAK and was taken to cargo wherein officers further investigated,” the witness Tufeel Hussain said.
However the Court said prosecution had failed to explain when the accused entered the State and for how long he stayed.
The Court said the offence under IMCO was not established against the accused. The Court said the accused is under custody for past two years. “Even if he is convicted he has served the maximum period of punishment for the offence he has been charged,” the Court added.
The Chief Judicial Magistrate directed the State and the Centre to deport the accused to Pakistan.
