A Pakistani lawyer says a judge has freed a nine-month-old boy accused of attempting to murder police in the eastern city of Lahore after police withdrew charges.
Lawyer Irfan Tarar says the judge announced the decision after Saturday’s court hearing during which police said it had dropped the charge against the infant.
He says police had registered the case against the baby and his family members without investigating the matter and the judge had sought an explanation.
The case highlights the country’s dysfunctional criminal justice system where even children are not immune from questionable legal decisions.
