This was his first appearance before a court in Pakistan in relation to the charge. He's accused with other family members of stoning police and other officials during a raid on the area where he lived. The infant's grandfather says the whole situation is incredible. (SOUNDBITE)(Urdu) GRANDFATHER OF MUSA KHAN, MOHAMMAD YASEEN SAYING: "He was booked under Section 326 and was presented before a court. He doesn't even know how to pick up his milk bottle properly. How can he stone the police?" Police charged the baby boy over the alleged incident that happened during a raid to disconnect gas supplies from homes where the bills had allegedly not been paid. An official complained that he had been attacked by the whole family and suffered a head injury. It's not yet clear what Musa's plea will be to the charge...nor how he is likely to communicate it to his legal team.
