LAHORE (GEO TV) — Police authorities suspended an officer for lodging an FIR against a nine-month old but only after a judge allowed the boy to be released on bail.

The accused appeared in the court with his grandfather Thursday where Judge Rafaqat Ali granted him an interim bail.

Nine-month-old Moosa Khan, who was shown in video being fingerprinted and drinking milk from bottle, was booked for his involvement in an alleged assassination attempt on police.

Muslim Town police accused the child of stoning their colleagues somewhere in the city.

Taking notice of the media reports DIG Operations has suspended the ASI for registering a case against the nine-month old boy.

Police were quick enough to shift the blame on the plaintiff of the FIR, saying they didn’t know whether the accused was a child.

Minister for Human Rights and Minorities Affairs Khalil Tahir Sindhu has also taken notice of the human rights violation by the police.
