A court awarded death sentence to an accused for his involvement in a murder case in Faisalabad on Thursday.
The judgment was announced by District and Sessions Judge Nazir Ahmed Gujana.
The prosecution told the court that accused Rana Muhammad Shakeel, resident of Chak 120, had killed Ghulam Abbas over an old enmity in 2016.
The local police registered a case against the accused and presented the challan before the court.
After hearing the arguments and analysing the evidence, the judge handed down death sentence to the accused along with a fine of Rs1 million as compensation money.
However, in case of failure to pay the fine, the convict will have to undergo an additional imprisonment of six months.
