Express May 09, 2011

LAHORE: Family members of Faizan Haider, who was killed by Raymond Davis last January, have returned to their home in Ferozwala.

The family returns after staying at an unidentified location for several months. The families of Faizan Haider and Faheem Shamshad had gone missing following the diyat payment on behalf of Raymond Davis on March 15.

A team of Express News went to their house but were prevented by other relatives from contacting any member of the family.

Sources reported that the family had bought a brand new car and a house in Ferozwala area near Lahore. Ferozwala is a suburban area having farmland and expansive houses.

Haider and Shehzad were shot dead in Qurtaba Chowk, Lahore by a US contractor, Raymond Davis. During the inquest, representatives of Davis submitted documents proving that as per Pakistani law, blood money had been paid to each of the grieved families, nullifying the need for a trial.



live pakistan news | 10 years ago | Reply We have no right to celebrate independence because we are still a slave and we take dictations from our lord America for every single issue in the country. As Raymond had allegations of double murdering and his act was strongly condemned by the whole nation, he was set freed. Imagine the intensity of heat and grief on the sad incident that wife of a victim committed suicide out of feelings of helplessness and despair from the justice delivering faction of the society. Religious groups and political parties pushed the families of victim to accept blood money referring it as a shariah law. At last but not least it was proven that money can buy you anything even pardon. It is shame for the whole nation that we have no dignity but compromises in life .we pardoned Raymond Davis for three lives but could not manage a pardon for Aafia for just attempt to attack on Nato officer. Shame, woe and curse many times on all of us for being sold out for dollars and humble slaves of America. Another victim of Raymond Davis found in a posh area of Lahore live pakistan news
