Sarfaraz Shah murder case: SHC upholds conviction of Rangers men

22 January, 2014

KARACHI: Sindh High Court (SHC) on Tuesday upheld the convictions by rejecting the appeals of Rangers personnel in Sarfaraz Shah murder case.

The court announcing its earlier reserved judgment acquitted Lance Naik Liaquat Ali and upheld the death sentence of constable Shahid Zafar.

Besides, the court also rejected the compromise agreement of the victim's family, forgiving all the convicts in the name of God.

The court reserved the judgment in May last year after a division bench, headed by Justice Sajjad Ali Shah, heard final arguments from deputy prosecutor general who had vehemently opposed the convicts' appeals.

Shah was shot twice by the Rangers personnel and was left to die at the Shaheed Benazir Bhutto Park in Clifton on June 8, 2011. Initially, the Rangers claimed to have killed a robber in an encounter but their claim was refuted after a video footage, incidentally recorded by a private TV channel's cameraman, was televised nationwide.
