PESHAWAR: Friends and family of Alesha, the transgender activist who died after being shot multiple times in Peshawar, are under pressure to drop the case against her alleged killer.

"Following Alesha’s murder, many from the transgender community were reminded they are not safe,” Qamar Naseem, Blue Veins program coordinator, told Samaa.

He said many people in powerful positions are lobbying to save Alesha’s alleged murderer. “Some prominent names associated with the murderer might surface in the coming days,” he added.

According to Naseem, members of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly as well as a former nazim and other government officials are putting pressure on social activists to drop the allegations and stop pursuing the case against Alesha’s alleged killer.

“They are building pressure on us to negotiate outside court or drop the case altogether,” Naseem added. – SAMAA
