The Supreme Court dismissed review petition against acquittal of 13 people in the gang-rape case today(thursday).
According to the reports of Baaghitv, SC three-member bench headed by Justice Gulzar Ahmed dismissed the petition by stating that the points raised in this petition may be looked at in another case. Justice Gulzar Ahmed said, “Shorten the review petition or it will drag on for 10 years.”
Mukhtaran Mai was repented by senior lawyer Aitazaz Ahsan who contended that Lahore High Court (LHC) in its 2005 verdict, had stated that no injuries resulting from a sexual assault were visible even though witness statements said otherwise.
Mukhtaran Mai filed a review petition against the LHC verdict in May 2011in which she pleaded the court that the court should review and recall the judgment and grant relief as prayed by her.
