Officials say 9-month-old Moosa Khan was booked into jail for his alleged “involvement” in an assassination attempt on police.

Police accused the baby of stoning their colleagues somewhere in the city.

The child appeared in a court with his grandfather, where he was granted an interim bail.

Now, officials have suspended the officer for registering a case against the boy.
