Murderer gets death sentence in Sahiwal
SAHIWAL: A lower court on Thursday awarded death sentence to a murder accused, namely Sardar Ali.
Additional District & Sessions Judge Anwar Ahmad Qureshi, while handing down the judgement, ordered the convict to pay Rs 0.2 million as compensation to the heirs of the victim, who was from Chak-15 Tukkara. Raiz was killed in 2006 over the dispute of an abduction case.
Failing to pay the amount, the murderer would undergo rigorous imprisonment of six-month. The court, however, acquitted his other accomplices, namely Tanveer and Saleem. Earlier, the court had awarded death sentence to Sardar Ali’s co-accused, Ramzan. But Ali had absconded at that time. A new trial was conducted after his arrest.
