jos_islamabad_mosqueAn Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) here on Saturday exonerated two innocent Shia youths from the fake charges of killing of Azam Tariq, a leader of banned outfit Sipah-e-Sahaba. The ATC Judge Malik Akram Awan acquitted Shia youths Muhammad Ali and Mudassir Ali on the charges of killing Azam Tariq in October 2003, as they
 were accused of firing at the banned outfit leader. The judge released both the accused by giving them benefit of the doubt, as prosecution could not prove its case. Talking to The Shiite News,  Advocate Ilyas Siddiqui who represented the released men told that the court had already cleared them in 2006 from the charges of abetting the deadly attack on Azam Tariq and they were arrested on February 19, 2007. Azam Tariq who was also an MNA from Jhang was killed along with four other men on October 6, 2003 when he was returning from his native constituency to attend the National Assembly session. In the attack, Azam had received 40 bullet injuries and died on the spot.
