PESHAWAR: A girl who conspired to kill her fiancé was given a 14-year jail term while her lover was sentenced for life for committing the crime.

Peshawar’s additional district and session court judge Shahzad Akhwanzada announced the verdict, in which Reema was also fined Rs300,000.

Siyab, her accomplice, was fined Rs500,000 along with the life imprisonment.

Imtiaz, who had returned from Dubai, was engaged to his paternal cousin Reema last year.

His fiance, however, was in love with Siyab, another cousin.

Siyab claimed that Reema would instigate and taunt him to get rid of Imtiaz so they could tie the knot.

'Pressurised' by her, Siyab gunned down Imtiaz in Peshawar.

Police were able to trace the suspects through their mobile phones.

Siyab confessed to the crime before a judicial magistrate and told the court that he was instigated by Reema.
