LAHORE: Anti-terrorism court judge Haroon Latif on Monday adjourned the hearing of Farzana murder case by today (Tuesday) due to strike of lawyers.
Previously, the court had recorded statements of five prosecution witnesses. Farzana Iqbal was allegedly stoned to death by her father and two brothers outside the LHC on May 27 after she was about to appear before the LHC where she was likely to give her statement in favour of her husband Iqbal.
Her family had claimed that she had married Mazhar Abbas and contracted second marriage without getting divorce from her first husband (Mazhar), terming her second marriage illegal and un-Islamic.
Police has so far arrested five people, including her two brothers Zahid Ali and Ghulam Ali, her father Azeem, her former husband Mazhar Abbas and her brother-in-law Jehan Khan. The CM had ordered the police to refer the case to ATC.
