Second Additional Sessions Judge Jammu Virender Singh Bhou acquitted Nissar Ahmed, son of Ghulam Rasool Bhat, resident of Kareri, District Baramulla, Kashmir and Peerzada Momin, son of Peerzada Ashraf, resident of Washkura Tehsil Handwara District Kupwara, Kashmir as prosecution miserably failed to prove the case.

After hearing Advocate Prince Khanna with Advocate Summit Khajuria for the accused persons, the court observed that there is delay of four days in forwarding the samples to FSL, Jammu because in the instant case as per the report of the FSL expert viz prosecution witness Pawan Abrol, it was categorically stated that the samples were received by him on July 18, 2017, four days after recovery and as per the standing instructions issued by NCB, the sample must be forwarded to FSL for Chemical Examination within a period of 72 hours.

"Therefore, keeping in view nature of the evidence on record which is inconsistent, contradictory and contradictions are major which go to the root of the case, and further there is a sheer violation of directory provisions of the Act, which affects the truthfulness of the prosecution case. The prosecution has miserably failed to prove the charges for the commission of the alleged offense against the accused persons beyond a reasonable shadow of a doubt”, the court observed.
