Principal District and Sessions court has allowed two prosecution witnesses to identify the vehicle allegedly used by accused in the acid attack on a law student at Nowshera here last year. 

"The trial of the case is going on fast track basis. The court allowed identification of the vehicle used in committing the offence on my submission," Special Public Prosecutor AA Teli told Greater Kashmir.

He said that court has listed the case on December 29, for next date of hearing.

Sources said the vehicle has been shifted from Soura police station to Batamaloo police station on court orders.

On December 11, last year, a 22-year-old law student was grievously injured in the acid attack near Nowshera on the city outskirts when she was on her way to her college. It was only after a fortnight following the attack, that the police arrested the accused duo— Irshad Ahmad Wani, alias Sunny, and Muhammad Omar for their alleged involvement in the incident.

The police has sought punishment for the accused on three counts under Sections 326-A (voluntary throwing acid to cause grievous injury), 120-B-9 (criminal conspiracy) and 201 (destruction of evidence) of the Ranbir Penal Code (RPC).

These sections can get the accused a punishment of rigorous imprisonment for 10 years, which can be extended up to life imprisonment.
