|The head of India's ruling party was acquitted of three murder charges on Tuesday in a trial that had undermined the government's promise to usher in a new era of clean politics. Amit Shah's lawyer, Mitesh Amin, said, Amit, the closest aide of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, was cleared of ordering police to carry out the extrajudicial killings of a gangster - Sohrabuddin Sheikh, his wife and his friend - when he served as home minister under Modi in the state of Gujarat almost a decade ago.
