A woman in Sialkot has allegedly killed her son’s suspected murderer after the Lahore High Court (LHC) had exonerated him of the charge due to lack of evidence, media reports emerged on Tuesday.
According to the details, Nouman had killed Perveen Akhtar’s son – Tasleem, 21 – seven years ago over a domestic issue in Sialkot.
Akhtar had lodged a case against the suspect in a court. After the proceedings, the court had found Nouman guilty of the charge and handed him a death sentence.
However, later, Nouman filed a plea in the LHC against the sentence and in April this year, the court annulled the lower court’s verdict and declared him “innocent”.
After his release, Nouman left for Dubai and remained there for several months. Upon his return to Pakistan, he was killed by Akhtar.
Police have registered a case against Akhtar and four alleged accomplices for Nouman’s murder. A police official said that they have arrested Akhtar and conducting raids to apprehend the co-accused.
According to the official, two murder cases were also registered against Tasleem.
