Sindh High Court commutes murderer’s death penalty to life imprisonment
The Sindh High Court on Monday commuted the death penalty of a man convicted of killing two people. He has been sentenced to life in prison instead.
Police arrested a man, identified as Murshid, for murdering his wife and sister-in-law with a dagger in 2014.
A trial court had sentenced him to death and a fine of Rs 500,000.
Murshid has then appealed to the high court for leniency. He has now had his sentence reduced to a life imprisonment.
The case against him was registered at the Iqbal Market police station.
