Local court in Quetta acquits former MPA in traffic warden hit-and-run case

A local court in Quetta acquitted former Balochistan lawmaker Majeed Khan Achakzai in a case regarding the death of a traffic warden in a hit-and-run incident over three years ago. Judge Dost Muhammad Mandokhail of a model court acquitted the former chairman of the provincial Public Accounts Committee due to lack of evidence. The court’s detailed judgement has not been issued as yet.

Achakzai was arrested days after a fast-moving vehicle belonging to him hit and ran over traffic warden Haji Attaullah at Quetta’s GPO Chowk in June 2017. The warden suffered serious injuries and later died at hospital.
