CHITRAL: Three persons, including a woman, have been sentenced to life imprisonment in the murder case of a woman in Oveer in the year 2000.
The woman’s dead body was recovered from a pond and declared a suicide by her relatives. However, police registered a case and during the investigation it transpired that Salahuddin, Samiuddin, sons of Noor Muhammad Shah and brothers of the deceased along with Saeeda Bibi, wife of Salahuddin and Bibi Harrira, wife of Samiullah, were allegedly involved in the murder of Fariha Bibi.
Additional District Judge Syed Zahid Shah while sentencing the convicts to life imprisonment also imposed a fine of Rs300,000 on each of them to be paid to the heirs of the deceased. The court, however, acquitted Bibi Harira.—Syed Nazir Hussain Shah
