Two Pak nationals acquitted in Chattisinghpora massacre case

A Delhi court on Wednesday acquitted two Pakistani nationals, suspected to be Lashkar-e-Taiba militants, of the charge of involvement in the massacre of 35 Sikhs in Chattisinghpora in Jammu and Kashmir 11 years ago.

Mohd Suhail and Waseem Ahmed, who hailed from Sialkot and Gujranwala in Pakistan respectively, were acquitted by Additional Sessions Judge Kaveri Baweja as the prosecution failed to produce evidence against them.

The case relating to the massacre was transferred here by the Supreme Court in November 2008.
