Almost 3-year-old Asma Rani case has finally reached its conclusion. The Court has given its verdict in the murder case of the third-year medical student that was shot dead near her home.
District and Session Judge Peshawar, Ashfaq Taj, sentenced the culprit, Mujahid Afridi to death. On the other hand, Sadiqullah Afridi and Shahzaib Khattak were acquitted. Keeping security concerns in mind, the Judge held a special hearing at Central Jail Peshawar.
In 2018, Asma Rani was murdered in Kohat, KP, for refusing a marriage proposal. At the time, the then Chef Justice of Pakistan, Saqib Nisar had taken notice of the case.
Before losing her life due to injuries, Rani had named Mujahid Afridi as her assailant in a video statement. The accused had fled the country, and was later arrested by KP police from the UAE through Interpol.
Previously, the victim’s sister, Safia Rani had alleged that PTI leaders Sheheryar Afridi and Aftab Alam were supporting the accused. According to her, it is on recordd that the KP Police and Aftab Alam were aware that Asma was being threatened. But, they did nothing to stop it from happening. However, over three years since the murder, this case has finally closed.
