SC completes hearing of suo moto notice of Mashal Khan murder case

ISLAMABAD: Supreme Court of Pakistan (SC) on Tuesday completed the hearing of suo-moto notice of Mashal Khan lynching case.

A three-member bench headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar heard the case.

In the proceedings, Additional Advocate General Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) said that the criminals have already been indicted in the murder case whereas the provincial government has filed an appeal against the persons acquitted in the case.

The bench remarked that suo moto proceedings are not required as the trial court has already handed punishments to the suspects.

Mashal Khan, a student of Abdul Wali Khan University, was murdered and lynched by a mob on charges of blasphemy.

It is pertinent to mention that Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) on February 7th, 2018 announced the verdict of the murder case of Mashal Khan.

Imran Ali, who shot at Mashal, was sentenced to death and a fine imposed on him. Five others have been given 25 years imprisonment each.

One of these five convicts is a university employee. Twenty-five others are to be jailed for four years each.
