Islamabad (March 26, 2018): The Supreme Court of Pakistan on Monday wrapped up the case of the suo motu notice it took in the Asma Rani murder case after all the accused are arrested and the trial is undergoing in lower court.
Asma Rani, a third-year medical student, was shot dead in Kohat in January apparently over refusing a marriage proposal. She was taken to a nearby hospital in Kohat after being shot thrice. In a video statement that went viral, she identified Mujahid as the assailant before succumbing to her wounds.During the hearing, CJP Mian Saqib Nisar asked if the suspect had been caught. Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa advocate-general said the accused, Mujahid Afridi, has been arrested and a challan has been submitted in the trial court.
“The law will make its own course,” said the CJP. “Since the challan has been submitted, we take back the suo motu notice.”
