Lahore: Killer gets life term
LAHORE: An additional district and sessions judge on Monday awarded life imprisonment to a murder accused and acquitted two others.
The court also ordered the convict to pay a fine of Rs100,000 to deceased’s heirs or serve six-month additional imprisonment in case of non-payment.
Anjum along with his accomplices Ghafoor Husain and Muhammad Ashfaq had killed Muhammad Tauseef for honour in August 1999 for harassing his sister in Gujjarpura locality. The police had registered a murder case (No 218/99) against them.
On Monday, the court after hearing final arguments awarded life imprisonment to Anjum and acquitted Ashfaq and Ghafoor by giving them the benefit of the doubt.
