PESHAWAR: The Peshawar High Court’s (PHC) Abbottabad bench on Wednesday acquitted four accused of attack on former advisor to prime minister Amir Muqam in Battagram in which six policemen were martyred.
An Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) had convicted the accused and awarded them death sentence and fine.
The law enforcement agencies had arrested two alleged planners of the attack on Amir Muqam in 2014.
Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Amir Muqam survived a roadside landmine blast on his way home, according to police.
Muqam, who was an advisor to then prime minister Nawaz Sharif and former governor of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, was returning home after visiting hospitalised victims of the Army Public School attack when a bomb blast went off near his vehicle.
