Kickass | 5 years ago | Reply He is not a suspect but a confirmed killer. Have the courage to call a murderer a criminal killer. Whose life he was trying to save? There is more than meets the eye. Now the courts will do exactly the way they spoiled Zain murder case of Lahore and facilitated criminal son of a PMLN politician escape abroad! Remember Divine Justice is not far away!
