Mashal Khan’s mother unhappy with acquittal of 26 suspects

Expressing dissatisfaction over the verdict of Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC), mother of slain journalism student Mashal Khan on Wednesday questioned acquittal of 26 suspects from the court.
Talking to press here, Mashal’s mother said the family will petition against the ‘incomplete justice’ in the high court.
“The justice has not been done with the acquittals of suspects,” she maintained.
She said the incomplete justice would encourage Mashal’s ‘absconding’ and ‘acquitted’ killers to take the law into their own hands in future.
Mashal’s murderers should have been punished in a way, they killed him,” she asserted.
Calling for strict punishment, she recalled the coldblooded murder of her son and said nobody was murdered mercilessly as Mashal in entire history of the country.
She was making her first formal response on the verdict announced earlier today by an ATC in Abbottabad.
