Zainab murder case: SC to hear plea against conviction of Imran next week
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The Supreme Court will hear the plea against the conviction of accused Imran next week in the Zainab murder case.
The three-member bench headed by Justice Asif Saeed Khosa will hear the petition.
Meanwhile, Chief Justice Saqib Nisar has ordered to withdraw the security of Haji Ameen, father of the seven-year-old Zainab who was murdered after rape.
He remarked that Haji Ameen does not need security as the person whom he faced a threat is in jail.
Earlier, the anti-terrorism court had handed down death on four counts to the killer of seven-year-old Zainab. The court also sentenced him life imprisonment and fined him Rs one million. Moreover, he was sentenced seven years and fined him Rs 200,000 for throwing the body on the heap of garbage.
The LHC upheld the conviction of Imran.
Zainab was kidnapped on January 4 and her body was found from a heap of garbage on January 9.
The incident had triggered violent protests in the city. Two people were killed when the police opened fire on a mob trying to enter the DC Office.
KAINAT CASE: On the other hand, the CJ also sought a report about the compensation and treatment of the minor Kainat who was also raped.
The Punjab chief secretary said that the victim Kainat had crossed the treatment stage. “Kainat’s treatment is not possible in the world, including Pakistan. She can also be looked after,” he said.
