Prosecution to appeal against fresh trial in Salman case

The prosecution has written a letter to the Law and Judiciary Department seeking permission to file an appeal, sessions court sources said on Monday.

Meanwhile, the case was on Monday adjourned till 7 January as the investigating officer did not attend the proceedings.

The prosecution, in the letter to the state government, said this was a fit case to file an appeal as the judge had erred in holding a de novo (fresh) trial. It said that there was no provision in law to hold a fresh trial and the evidence adduced in a court could not be discarded.
