That said the chances of the family getting justice are not good seeing that the honorable judge found it necessary to set a 50,000 bail for the baby. Seriously??
The lawyer of nine-month-old baby Mohammad Musa charged with attempted murder
withdrew the plea for bail on Saturday after police struck off the
baby’s name from the first information report (FIR), DawnNews reported.
expiry of the bail period, Musa was brought to a sessions court in
Lahore for the case’s hearing during which a police inspector informed
the family that the baby’s name was not registered with the police
Meanwhile, the court issued a show-cause notice to a policeman over what it called dereliction of duty.
Whereas, the policeman alleged that the baby brought in the court was not Musa.
Meanwhile, Musa’s family and their lawyers said the police was troubling them using various excuses.
On Feb 1, the
case was registered against members of a family (including baby Musa)
and dozens of other inhabitants of Muslim Town after they allegedly
attacked a bailiff and a raiding team of the Sui Northern Gas Pipelines
(SNGPL) after it went there to arrest people involved in gas theft.
The baby’s grandfather, Muhammad Yasin, and his three sons still face the charges.
judge had earlier granted confirmed bail to Musa against bail bonds
worth Rs50,000, but he had to appear before the court today.
