9-month-old Pakistani boy arrested for attempted murder

Posted: Updated:

FOXNews.com -- A nine-month-old Pakistani boy sat on his father's lap, sucking on a bottle during a court appearance where he and at least 30 others were charged with attempted murder.

Little Muhammad Mosa Khan was also charged with threatening police and interfering in state affairs at a Pakistan court Thursday. Khan and others in the group were booked following a police raid to catch suspected gas thieves in the city of Lahore, The Times of India reported.

Police say the suspects tried to kill security officers by throwing stones at them. But Khan's father, Ahmed—who is also accused-- says the crowd was protesting an electricity shortage.

Ahmed claims police created a fake case against him, his son and others in the group and urged authorities to drop the charges. "Our crime is that we had protested against non-availability of electricity in our locality," Ahmed said.

Judge Rafaqat Ali first directed police to record the child's statement, then when he realized his age, granted him bail and adjourned the case until April 12. The judge could not dismiss the case as it's not under his jurisdiction.

Senior Superintendent of Police Rana Jabbar said there was a misunderstanding that led police to book the minor in the case. The assistant superintendent who filed the charges against the infant has been suspended.
