Not true. What you said is true only in Indian Constitution. But CrPC uses different terminology. Until it is amended the double jeopardy applies both to autrefois convict and autrefois acquit.
I am sure they have more than enough evidence to try, convict and hang the good Mr Azar.
Don’t worry about timing either, look at how quickly the late Mr Kasab was tried and hung at at the pleasure of GOI.
A fresh trial will not be a bad thing, all kinds of new and interesting evidence will be brought to bear - which will not only incriminate Mr Azar, but will also incriminate the Crème de la Crème of the ISI. This will put even more pressure on what we used to call TSP.
