Lahore—A sessions court on Monday sentenced two brothers, Ahsan and Zeeshan Butt, to death twice for killing their sister and her husband over ‘honour’ six years ago.
Judge Naveed Iqbal also imposed a fine of Rs one million each on the convicted men.
The two brothers had shot dead their sister, Saba, and her husband, Shafiq, for marrying out of their own will six years ago. The couple, who were residents of Yaki Gate area of Lahore’s walled city, had married of their free will in 2009 and had moved away.
But Ahsan and Zeeshan invited them over for a meal and shot dead the couple only a few months after their marriage.
