Girl Accused Of Murdering Sister Acquitted Following ‘Pardon’ By Parents

A model court in Karachi acquitted four people for the murder of a 20-year-old girl, Aleena, as the victim’s parents pardoned the murderers and requested the court not to prosecute them.

According to a report in The News, one of those accused was Aleena’s sister Alveena, who along with her fiance, Mazhar and two friends of the victim, Ahsan and Abbas, had been charged with murder and blackmail.

The verdict was passed by additional sessions judge of District East’s model criminal court after examining the affidavit submitted by Aleena’s parents.

The murder had occurred in December 2017. It had been reported after the incident that Aleena was murdered and her sister stabbed while resisting a robbery attempt at their house.

Later, police had revealed that Alveena confessed to murdering her sister after being blackmailed by Aleena and her friends.

Police stated that Aleena and Ahsan had been blackmailing Alveena over objectionable photographs.

Alveena and Mazhar initially tried to pressurise Aleena into deleting the pictures. However, following her refusal, Alveena stabbed her sister to death with the help of Mazhar. The two tried to destroy evidence following the murder, including mobile phones.

In April 2018, an additional district court and sessions court granted bail to Alveena and the three other suspects for a sum of Rs100,000 each.
