Muhmmad Idrees had killed Abdullah in 2014 after he suspected that he and his sister had developed a relationship. Before his murder, the victim had reportedly admitted he was in love with the woman and expressed his desire to marry her.
An irate Idrees did not approve of that relationship and instead killed Abdullah on October 14, 2014.
Three eyewitnesses, Noorul Amin, Muhammad Ghufran and Jan Muhammad, appeared before Additional District and Sessions Judge (Malir) Shafiuddin Peerzada during the trial.
In all, 10 witnesses deposed against Idrees and told the judge that he had killed Abdullah in the Quaidabad police station limits. The case was registered by Akhatr, father of the deceased.
