Srinagar – The Court of Second Additional District & Sessions Judge in Srinagar has acquitted the accused, Tariq Ahmad Wangnoo, in a high-profile rape and sexual assault case. The accused was represented by lawyer Irfan Rashid, who successfully defended him against charges under FIR NO 48/2015, including section 376 and other enabling sections.

The case, which had been pending for several years, had attracted widespread attention and scrutiny from the media and the public alike. The verdict, which was delivered earlier today, has been hailed by the accused’s family and supporters, who expressed relief and gratitude to Rashid for his efforts.

Speaking to the media after the verdict, Rashid thanked the court for its fairness and impartiality. He also praised the accused for his patience and resilience throughout the trial, and expressed hope that the verdict would serve as a precedent for similar cases in the future.

“This is a landmark verdict, not just for my client but for the entire legal system,” Rashid said. “It shows that justice can still be served, even in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds. I am proud to have been a part of this case, and I hope that it will inspire others to fight for their rights and defend themselves against false accusations.”

The verdict has also sparked a debate among legal experts and activists, who have questioned the reliability of the evidence presented by the prosecution. Some have argued that the case highlights the need for reforms in the legal system, particularly in cases of sexual assault.

“This verdict shows that the law is still the ultimate arbiter of justice,”  Irfan said. “As lawyers, it is our duty to uphold the principles of justice and fairness, and to defend our clients to the best of our abilities. I am confident that we can continue to do so, no matter how difficult the circumstances may be.”
