A convict was handed down death sentence while three others were awarded life imprisonment in an honour killing case in Nowshera.
Additional District and Sessions Judge, Nowshera, Hidayatullah Khan gave the verdict, awarding capital punishment to Mohammad Gul, and life term to Naqeebullah, Rehmatullah and Rasool Khan, residents of Taza Din village.
Their mother, Taj Meena, was sent behind bars for 10 years, while two co-accused in the case — Habibullah and Razaullah — were declared absconders.
The convicts were arrested in the murder case of a girl who had allegedly married with a person without consent of the family. The convicts had buried the victim secretly.
However, the news spread on regular and social media due to which local police started investigation and exhumed her body for further investigation. Police said the autopsy report confirmed the death of the girl by strangling.
They said the girl was brought back to home from Peshawar on assurance that she would be married off properly. However, the mother of the girl killed her with support of her relatives. The Pabbi police had registered the FIR against the culprits on Oct 19, 2016.
