LAHORE: An anti-terrorism court has fixed May 21 for framing charges on 106 people accused of lynching a Christian couple in Kot Radha Kishan last year. On November 4, 2014, Shama and Shehzad were beaten to death by a mob over blasphemy allegations and then thrown into the furnace of a brick kiln where the couple worked. The court has now distributed case copies among the 106 accused. Police have submitted a challan in the court declaring all the 106 guilty. Their counsel told the court police had implicated some passers-by and guests in the case.
