Shahpur Additional and Session Judge Sikandar Javed acquitted three suspects involved in a murder case in Shahpur Saddar police limits.

Court officials said on Tuesday that Nasar Hayyat, a resident of village Bhagar Pindi, Shahpur tehsil, was charged along with his two sons Muhammad Fiyyaz and Muhammad Riaz for allegedly killing his daughter Rehmaniya Nasir in the name of honour.

Police had arrested the accused, registered a case against them and presented challans in the court. However, after hearing arguments of the counsels, the learned Judge Sikandar Javed acquitted all the three accused reportedly on ‘the benefit of doubt and insufficient evidence’.
