Huh? Pakistani Nine-Month-Old Charged with Attempted Murder

How’s this for justice: roughly thirty people were rounded up by Pakistani police and charged with attempted murder and threatening the police. And one of the people being charged is, for some weird reason, a nine-month-old boy. Yes, a nine-month-old was charged with “planning the murder, threatening of a police team and interfering in state affairs.”

Muhammad Mosa Khan actually appeared before a judge, and the counsel present argued that the very fact a nine-month-old was charged “shows bad intentions of the police department.”

The police, of course, defended themselves in court:

The police booked nine month old under Pakistan Penal Code (PPC) sections 324 (Attempt to commit qatl-i-amd: trying to murder with intention or knowledge) and section 353 (assault or criminal force to deter public servant from discharge of his duty).

The ASI in his FIR stated that he along with department officials of Sui Norher Gas raided the area namely ‘Ahta Thane-daran’ located in the area of Muslim Town to arrest people involved in gas theft. He said that, during the course of raid, Mosa Khan along with his 35 other co-accused tried to murder police party in terms of an assassination attempt by stoning them and interfered in state affairs.
