‘There Is Absolutely No Evidence Against Accused’
D A RASHID
Srinagar, Jan 2: A local court here on Wednesday acquitted Muslim league Chairman Dr Muhammad Qasim Faktoo in a case related to collection of money for militant outfits registered against him at Soura police station in 2002.
The Court of Chief Judicial Magistrate, Srinagar, Rajeev Gupta while acquitting Faktoo held: “On having glance at the evidence of prosecution, I did not find any incriminating circumstance against the accused.”
The court said the witnesses produced by the prosecution have not stated anything in support of charge against the accused. “There being absolutely no evidence against the accused, he is acquitted,” the court said.
Police Station Soura had filed a case against Dr Faktoo in 2002 under 13 Unlawful Activities Act on the charges that he was collecting money for supporting militant organizations in the state. A charge-sheet was later filed in the court.
Meanwhile the Jammu and Kashmir High Court today while hearing a fresh contempt petition directed the Director General Prisons to file a compliance report of the earlier court directions on providing medical treatment to Faktoo.
Justice Muzaffar Hussain Attar asked the DG Prisons to file the report in a week before the Registry in view of the court’s winter vacation from January 5.
