Actor Osman Khalid Butt files petition against the acquittal of Qandeel's murderer

Actor Osman Khalid Butt has filed a petition in the Supreme Court of Pakistan challenging the acquittal of Qandeel Baloch’s murderer, who was released from prison in February.

The petition challenged the Lahore High Court‘s (LHC) decision on the grounds that the judgement was sketchy, illegal” and in “contravention of the law”.

Waseem Baloch had been convicted of murdering his sister and social media sensation Qandeel Baloch and was sentenced to life imprisonment.

The actor’s petition stated that the LHC’s judgement “allowed the perpetrators of honour killings to avoid punishment by seeking forgiveness” and “essentially endorses such barbarism”.
