Court to announce verdict in Zahra Shahid murder case on Aug 31


KARACHI: Following completion of arguments by both the sides, an anti-terrorism court in Karachi on Sunday reserved its verdict in the case pertaining to the murder of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Zahra Shahid, ARY News reported.

The verdict in the murder case will be announced on August 31.

Ms Shahid was shot dead outside her residence in Karachi’s Defence Housing Authority Phase-IV in May 2013, ostensibly in an attempted robbery incident.

PTI chief Imran Khan had blamed the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) for its involvement in the killing. However, the MQM denied the claim, saying the PTI was politicizing the issue.

Four detained accused — Mohammad Rashid alias Master, Zahid Abbas Zaidi, Irfan alias Lamba, and Kaleem — have been charged with killing the PTI leader.
