ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court on Tuesday acquitted four death row prisoners for lack of evidences.

A three-member SC bench, headed by Justice Asif Saeed Khan Khosa and comprising Justice Dost Muhammad Khan and Justice Qazi Faez Isa, heard the case.

An anti-terrorism court (ATC) had awarded death sentence to Aslam and his three accomplices for murdering Muhammad Naeem on the court premises in Quetta. There were convicted under Anti-Terrorist Act.

The court after hearing arguments from both sides acquitted all the four accused giving them the benefit of doubt.
