Pak court lets 2 Sarabjit murder suspects go scot free

Lahore: A Pakistani court on Saturday acquitted two prime suspects in the murder case of Indian national Sarabjit Singh in 2013 in the Kot Lakhpat jail here, citing "lack of evidence" against them. The Lahore Sessions Court announced its verdict in the case which was pending for more than five years. According to a court official, Lahore's additional district and sessions judge Muhammad Moin Khokhar acquitted the main suspects — Amir Tamba and Mudassar — after all witnesses turned hostile.

"Not a single witness testified in the court against both the suspects. The court acquitted them for lack of evidence against them," the official said. He said that both suspects made their presence in the court through a video link from the Kot Lakhpat Jail because of security concerns.
