ISLAMABAD: Additional District and Sessions Judge Shahrukh Arjumand on Monday sentenced two men to life imprisonment after they were convicted of murder and robbery. In 2013, Shahbaz Ahmad and Tasar Mehmood were booked by the Shahzad Town police on theft, robbery and murder charges.

The court also imposed a fine of Rs550,000 on Ahmad and Rs200,000 on Mehmood. Failing to pay the fine, the convicts will undergo further six months of imprisonment each. Meanwhile, Additional District and Sessions Judge Raja Khurram Ali Khan acquitted two murder suspects after the two parties reached an out-of-court settlement. Asim Mehmood and Sajjad Rasheed, the suspects, were booked by the Lohi Bher police last year on murder and attempted murder charges.
