A man was convicted and awarded a life term on Monday for murdering a woman over her refusal to marry her daughter with him in 2014.
The court of an additional district and sessions judge of District Malir, concluding the trial against two men, Sheeraz alias Nana and co-accused Asad, observed that the prosecution had proved the murder charges against Sheeraz, but no sound proof was put forwarded against the co-accused.
The court sentenced the convict to life in jail, and acquitted Asad. Sheeraz had killed Ambar after she had refused to marry her daughter with him. The police had arrested him along with the dagger he had used to kill Ambar. The murder case was lodged at Malir City Police Station.
