MQM workers sentenced to death in PTI's Zahra Shahid murder
KARACHI (92 News) – An anti-terrorism court (ATC) on Friday sentenced two MQM workers to death in murder case of senior Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Zahra Shahid.
Shahid was murdered in 2013. She was shot dead outside her residence in DHA, Karachi, on May 18 – the eve of the re-election on Karachi’s National Assembly constituency NA-250.
MQM workers Rashid alias Tailor Master, Zahid Abbas Zaidi were convicted of killing the female politician while, Irfan alias Lamba and Kaleem were acquitted from the charge.

The driver of the deceased leader was among the prosecution witness. The court had earlier heard a magistrate who conducted the identification parade. The magistrate confirmed that at the identification parade, the witnesses had identified the suspected killers.
