ASJ Muhammad Iqbal Malik delivered the sentence to Irfan Amin, who killed the friend of his wife, and imposed Rs100,000 as fine.

In case of non-payment of fine, the convict would undergo six months extra imprisonment. Amin had also injured his wife after killing her friend.

The judge also sentenced the convict to eight years rigorous imprisonment for attempting to murder his wife and imposed Rs25,000 as fine and if he failed to pay the amount, he would be kept in the jail for three months more.

According to police, the convict had killed the woman on the suspicion that she was trying to create rift between him and her wife.
