Muzaffarnagar riots: 4 accused let off due to lack of evidence

MUZAFFARNAGAR: A local court has let off four accused in the Muzaffarnagar riots case due to lack of evidence.
On September 28, 2013, Naeem and his two brothers, Nadeem and Shaukat, residents of Phugana village had filed a case at Phugana police station alleging that “Yogendra, Nitin Guddu and Vishal, along with dozens of other people” attacked their house on September 8.
Naeem stated in his complaint that “the attackers were equipped with firearms and sharp-edged weapons,” and that they assaulted him and his family. He also said that they “ransacked our house and looted more than three lakh rupees, which they set on fire.”
Defence lawyer Sohrab Singh said, “The complaina-nt and his two brothers, who were witnesses in the riots case, turned hostile and the accused were acquitted.”
In October last year, a local court had let off 20 men due to lack of evidence. In December, five others were exonerated.
