The Supreme Court (SC) has acquitted the accused in the Daniel Pearl murder case.

The Supreme Court of Pakistan has ordered the release of Omar Sheikh, who was convicted for the abduction and murder of US journalist Daniel Pearl in 2002.

Supreme Court bench head by Justice Mushir Alam dismissed the petition of the Sindh government against Sindh High Court (SHC) decision to overturn the conviction of accused.

Giving sensitive information to the court in a sealed envelope, Advocate General Sindh said that Ahmed Omar Sheikh has links with banned organizations, there is evidence but not enough to prove it in court. A person that fights against the state is an enemy.

Justice Omar Ata Bandial said that the material given to the Supreme Court has not been presented in any forum before, how to review the information that has never come on the record? If the state had information, why it did not file a case of anti-nationalism against Ahmed Omar Sheikh?

A bench headed by Justice Mushir Alam delivered a brief verdict and has ordered the release of Omar Sheikh and rejected the Sindh government’s appeal.

It may be recalled that the Sindh government had filed appeals in the Supreme Court against the acquittal of the accused.
