A court in Umerkot on Saturday acquitted Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Haleem Adil Sheikh and others in Kunri car attack case.

As per details, PTI leader was accused of abducting and torturing Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) worker Khalid Jutt during his visit to Kunri in Sindh last year.

He appeared before the court to hear the verdict. He had pleaded not guilty in the case and accused Taimoor Talpur and SSP Aijaz Shaikh of attacking his vehicle.

The court acquitted the PTI leaders and workers as the prosecution failed to provide sufficient evidence against the suspects.

Others acquitted in the case include Haji Nisar Arain, Jansher Junejo, Muhammad Owais, Muhammad Umer, and Syed Murtaza Shah.

“We were attacked in Kunri and a case was forged against us,” Sheikh said while talking to media after the hearing.

“No one registered an FIR for us, he said, adding that he had been named in a fake case. “I have been attending court hearings for a year now. I hope the verdict is given in my favour,” he added.

Last year on November 1, Sheikh’s car was attacked after he was returning from a visit to pay his respects to the families of some of the victims of the Tezgam train accident.

Though his car windows were smashed, he remained safe. He said he was going to Kunri where the funerals of four victims of the train accident were when this happened.

He said local PPP leader Taimur Talpur was there in Amir Mohalla with a police escort and opened fire at his party and threw rocks. They then stopped the Vigo in which my workers were and smashed it, he accused.
