Police officials have declared military ruler General (retd) Pervez Musharraf not guilty in the murder case of Lal Masjid cleric Ghazi Abdur Rasheed, Express News reports. A sessions court in Islamabad held a hearing into the murder case on Wednesday, with Additional Sessions Judge Islamabad Justice Raja Asif Mehmood presiding over the proceedings. Earlier, the former president had petitioned the court, seeking the dismissal of the charges against him.It was a cold, quiet November morning of 2016. A van carrying over a dozen villagers was cruising past the sleepy village of Nagdar Kinari on a road snaking through the lush mountains of the scenic Neelum Valley along the Line of Control (LoC) in Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK). The vehicle was headed to state capital Muzaffarabad. Across barbed wire, Indian troops could easily tell this wasnt a military vehicle. And with their field glasses, they could even see the faces of passengers in all probability. Suddenly, the melodic silence of the picturesque village was shattered. A rockets blitz whistled through the cold air. Boom, boom, boom! The Indian troops were shelling madly. A mortar shell tore into the van and tossed it off the road. They didnt hold fire. Shells rained like hail. Shrapnel whizzed all around. An unending crackle of machinegun fire followed. An ambulance came to evacuate the casualties. The vehicle was not spared either. Perhaps the Indians wanted to make sure no one was rescued. By the time the injured villagers were driven to hospital, nine had already died another seven were fighting for life.
