Sharafat Ali was found guilty of stabbing his father Abdul Hameed after a brawl as the convict misbehaved with his mother in their house in the Orangi Town area of Karachi in January 2010.
Additional District and Sessions Judge (west) Ilimuddin Janwari also imposed a fine of Rs200,000 and in case of default the convict will undergo six-month imprisonment.
The court ruled that the case stood proved beyond a shadow of a doubt since eyewitnesses deposed against the accused and the documentary evidence also corroborated the testimonies.
However, capital punishment is subject to confirmation of the high court.
Brother of the accused had lodged a case against him under Section 302 (premeditated murder) of the Pakistan Penal Code at the Mochko police station.
