Moga court acquits Hawara in an attempt to murder case

Jagtar Singh Hawara, facing a death sentence for assassinating former Punjab Chief Minister Beant Singh, was today acquitted by a Moga court in an attempt to murder case of 2010.

District and Sessions Judge Tarsem Mangla acquitted Hawara in the attempt to murder case as the prosecution failed to secure evidence against him.

Hawara was brought from Tihar Jail and produced in the court under tight security. Hawara and two others had been booked by the police for allegedly trying to kill Constable Jasbir Singh in 2010.

A case had been registered against Hawara and the two under various sections of the Indian Penal Code on January 19, 2010. The police in its investigation report told the court that the prosecution has not been able to gather sufficient evidence against him.

The other two accused have already been acquitted by the court.
