SARGODHA: Additional District and Sessions Judge Farzana Shahzad on Friday awarded death sentence and 40 year jail term to two accused involved in a dual murder case within Terkhanawala police station.

The prosecution told the court that accused Salah Muhammad, Muhammad Asif and their father Ashraf had murdered their two uncles Ghulam Raza and Asif over a family dispute.

After hearing the witnesses, the court awarded death sentence to Salah Muhammad and 40 years jail imprisonment to Muhammad Asif with a collective fine of Rs1000,000 which would be paid as compensation to the heirs of the deceased. Meanwhile, the court acquitted Ashraf over lack of evidence.
