The Sindh High Court Wednesday cleared Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan leader Amir Khan in a 17-year-old double murder case, 24NewsHD TV channel reported.

The SHC overruled the sentence of MQM-P leaders Amir Khan and Tariq Bata and ordered the immediate release from jail of the latter while Amir Khan was already given bail in August 2009.

He was charged for abetting the targeted killing of two MQM workers Anam Uzair and Mohammad Naeem during a National Assembly seat (NA-255) by-election in Farooq Sattar constituency on 23 February 2003. Amir Khan was the secretary-general of Mohajir Qaumi Movement at that time.

He was tried along with the main accused, Tariq Bata, Raees and Nazim, by an anti-terrorism court that sentenced him to 10 years rigorous imprisonment in December 2004.

According to prosecution five Haqiqi activists included Amir Khan came on a car, while a couple of Haqiqi men opened fire on a Hi-roof carrying Muttahida workers. Anam Uzair died instantly and Mohammed Naeem, who was seriously injured, died in hospital after two days.
