Perween Rahman’s Family to Challenge SHC Verdict in SC

KARACHI: Rights activist Perween Rahman’s family has decided to challenge the Sindh High Court’s verdict acquitting all five men sentenced in her murder case in the Supreme Court.

Aqeela Ismail, sister of the slain rights activist said that the verdict is “beyond comprehension”.

“Everything was clear both the joint investigation teams found the suspects guilty [of her murder]; however, every thing was ended today,” she highlighted, lamenting that neither were they heard nor given an opportunity in the SHC.

She said that the lives of her family members and the employees of the Orangi Pilot Project were in danger after the release of the suspects.

The slain architect’s sister also demanded the federal government provide them with justice.
