Asma Nawab released from jail after acquittal in triple murder case
KARACHI (92 News) – Asma Nawab, who was acquitted by the Supreme Court in a murder case after nearly two decades, was released from women’s jail on Thursday.
She was accused of killing her parents and brother over love marriage. She and two others were acquitted by the apex court earlier this week.
“It is unbelievable that I am watching the outside world. I was imprisoned for nothing. I have not thought about the new world,” she said.
Asma, Muhammad Farhan Khan and Javed Ahmed Siddiqui had appealed against their death sentences in the Supreme Court. On April 2, the court accepted their appeals, nullified their sentences and ordered their immediate release.
In 1999, the sessions court had ordered double death sentences for the three suspects. The Sindh High Court rejected their appeal against the death sentence in 2015.
