Pakistani accused of 100 murders walks free
Islamabad: A Pakistani man accused of more than 100 counts of manslaughter in the port city of Karachi has been released after he was acquitted in many cases and got bail in the rest, a media report said.
Shahnawaz alias Ajmal Pahari was released from the Karachi Central Jail Friday, Geo News reported.
Jail authorities said Pahari was released after he was acquitted or secured bail in all the cases registered against him.
He had been detained since September 2012 under the maintenance of public order act.
Pahari through his counsel told a court that he had been detained without any justification or validity.
Pahari, who was arrested in March 2011, had been acquitted in 11 cases of violent crime.
He pleaded with the court that he was granted bail in the remaining cases, but police continued to detain him illegally.
