September 5: Police in Gilgit have failed to prove cases of terrorism against 6 more people arrested from different parts of Hunza. An anti-terrorism court today ordered release of six more people arrested on charges of torching government buildings, documents and vehicles in Aliabad, in reaction to the brutal murder of two IDPs.
It is pertinent to note that 11 people had been honourably acquitted earlier last week due to absence of evidence.
Those released today include Waheed (Karimabad), Sifat (Garelt), Sher Ali, Javed, Mobeen and Mir Alam (Aliabad).
Physical remand of the 8 remaining detainees has been extended till September 12.
Acquittal of majority of the detainees has proved the public claims right that the vengeful police and district officials were blindly arresting people in they valley after the unrest triggered by broad daylight murder of two IDPs who had lost their homes and land as a result of the damming of Hunza River.
