PESHAWAR: The Peshawar High Court has accepted the bail pleas of four accused men in the murder case of Karak rape survivor Uzma Ayub’s brother Alamzeb.

One of the accused is a police official.

Alamzeb Khattak was shot dead on December 9, 2011, while escorting his sister Uzma for a hearing for her rape case at Karak courts.

Zafran, Uzma and Alamzeb’s brother, registered a case at the Takhte Nusrati Police Station in Karak and alleged ASI Hakim Khan, Javed Shah, Rehmat Shah, Ibrahim Shah and Abdul Waheed of having killed Alamzeb.

Police later arrested ASI Hakim, Javed, Rehmat and Abdul Waheed. Ibrahim, who is said to have escaped the scene on a motorcycle and is a brother of ASI Hakim, is yet to be arrested.

    Its sad that accused are not being sentenced by the courts. The number of this kind incidents are increasing day by day. Granting the bail to criminals not only motivate the criminals but also add the problems to the victims family. On the other hand it reflects the inefficiency of our judicial system. How many criminals of rape & terrorism have been brought to justice? is a big question.

    thats exactly why people have lost faith in the judicial system in this country. Courts should be ashamed to work so uselessly and on such crap laws.
