This decision will be a warning sign for such brutal criminals. There should be a speedy trial of such cases in other courts of the country also so that those responsible can reach the punishment.
نورمقدم قتل کیس میں مرکزی ملزم کو مثالی سزا ملنا خوش آئند ہے۔ یہ فیصلہ ایسے درندہ صفت مجرموں کے لئے نشان عبرت ثابت ہوگا۔ ملک کی دیگر عدالتوں میں بھی اس نوعیت کے کیسز کی سپیڈی ٹرائل ہونا چاہئے تاکہ زمہ داران کیفرکردار تک پہنچ سکیں۔— Farrukh Habib (@FarrukhHabibISF) February 24, 2022
