It’s official: Davis booked for murder

Lahore/Washington: The tussle between the US and Pakistan over the fate of the jailed diplomat — Raymond Davis  intensified as he was formally charged with murder on Tuesday even as Washington said it would plead before the jury that the official had diplomatic immunity. Rejecting Davis’ claim that he shot two men in self-defence, the prosecution filed a ‘challan’ in the court of a district and sessions judge, formally charging him with murder of two Pakistanis in Lahore. Officials told the media that the chargesheet was based on forensic reports. 
   They said the charges were based on witnesses who had stated that the American pursued the two men and fired at them. PTI
