Haren Pandya murder: 12 acquitted, CBI slammed

Ahmedabad: The Gujarat High Court has acquitted 12 people accused of murdering former Home Minister, Haren Pandya. It has also accused the CBI of mishandling the investigation.

Mr Pandya was shot in Ahmedabad in 2003 while he was in his car at the Law Garden.

In 2007, the 12 people accused of his death were convicted by a local court under the Prevention of Terrorism Act (POTA); nine of them were sentenced to life in prison. All the convicts had appealed to the High Court.
