... Judge tosses attempted murder case against 9-month-old baby
A Pakistani judge threw out charges of attempted murder against a nine-month-old baby on Saturday, lawyers said, in a case that cast a spotlight on Pakistan’s dysfunctional justice system.
Baby Musa Khan appeared in court in the city of Lahore, sitting on his grandfather’s lap and drinking from a bottle of milk.
He and his adult relatives were charged this month with attempting to murder a policeman after his family clashed with police and gas company workers trying to collect overdue bills.
Police registered a case against the whole family.
“Police told the court that the nomination of Musa in the case of attacking police and gas company officials was a human error and Musa is not required,” defense lawyer Irfan Sadiq told Reuters.
The baby’s grandfather, Muhammad Yasin, and his three sons still face the charges.
