Defence lawyer Sohrab Singh said: “The complainant and his two brothers, who were witnesses in the case, became hostile. Therefore, judge Babu Ram’s court (additional district and sessions judge court-6) has acquitted the accused.”

In October last year, a local court had let off 20 men due to lack of evidence. They were accused of murdering a man and setting his house on fire after robbing it.

In December, five men were exonerated for similar reasons.
