PAKISTAN: SC COMMUTES DEATH SENTENCES OF TWO MURDERERS TO LIFE IMPRISONMENT
October 31, 2016: Supreme Court (SC) converted the death penalty of two murder convicts to life imprisonment.
A three-member bench headed by Justice Asif Saeed Khosa held a hearing over the plea pertaining to the diminution in the sentences of the convicts.
Muhammad Asif and Khurram had killed their aunt over resistance during a dacoity bid in Rawalpindi.
The bench remarked that a hostile murder has not been proved and the dispute among the parties could be something else.
The court commuted the sentence over insufficient evidence.Â (Sources: Dunya News, 31/10/2016)
