Rawalpindi: Man sentenced to death for double murder
RAWALPINDI: According to the Dawn News on Wednesday, an additional district and sessions judge on Tuesday handed down death sentence to a man on two counts for killing a woman and her son over a petty issue about three years back.
Judge Syed Ali Imran convicted Ibarat Hussain for killing Said Jan and her son Fida Hussain in Kahuta. He was also fined Rs400,000.
The court also awarded his wife Yasmin Bibi four years imprisonment along with a fine of Rs20,000 while his cousin Banaras Hussain would have to spend 20 years in jail and pay Rs200,000 fine for abetting the murder and helping the killer.
