Killer freed on benefit of doubt in Lahore
LAHORE: Additional District and Sessions Judge Muhammad Yousaf Aujla on Monday released a man accused of murdering his daughter for having illicit relations.
According to details of the case, the brother of the girl had filed a murder case against their father Ashraf for relations with one Azhar. It was mentioned in the file record of the case, registered on August 8, 2010 in South Cantonment Police Station, that Ashraf killed his daughter.
The petitioner had prayed the court to award the punishment to Ashraf over killing his daughter who was wedded with his relative, namely Sarfraz, at the age of 22 years. But the witnesses of the case changed their statements before the court, on which the court released Ashraf, giving the benefit of doubt.
