An Anti-Terrorism Court awarded death sentence to a man for throwing acid and murdering a woman in Multan. The judgment was announced by ATC-1 Judge Malik Khalid Mahmood. The prosecution told the court that accused Kashif alias Kashi had thrown acid on a woman Mumtaz Bibi after she refused to get involved in immoral activities with him. As a result, she suffered severe burn injuries and later died at the hospital.
