ISLAMABAD, Pakistan, Sept. 22 (UPI) -- Officials in Pakistan say there is no evidence that a teenage Christian girl accused of blasphemy actually desecrated holy papers from the Koran.
Rimsha Masih, 14, was arrested in Islamabad Aug. 16 and charged with blasphemy for allegedly tearing pages of the Koran and burning them, Pakistan's Dawn News reported.
A district attorney said Saturday no evidence has been found to support the charges and Masih's accuser, Mohammad Khalid Chishti, may be charged with tampering with evidence.
The district attorney, whose name was not reported, alleged Chishti put the holy papers into a bag Masih was carrying, which were later discovered, prompting the girl's arrest.
A judge is expected to issue charges in the case at a later date.
