MULTAN – An anti-terrorism court in Multan on Tuesday sentenced a woman to death on two counts after finding her guilty of murdering her husband.

Judge Malik Khalid Mehmood, in his verdict, said that Yasmeen has been found guilty of “the brutal and gruesome murder of her husband,” Muhammad Imran Ashraf. He also handed her a life imprisonment sentence.

“The convict sprinkled acid on Muhammad Irfan Ashraf, entailing his death,” the verdict noted.

She was booked on June 23 by Multan’s Ludden Vehari Police.
