Staff Reporter


The Supreme Court has admitted the Sindh government’s plea and fixed the urgent hearing of American journalist Daniel Pearl murder case on Monday.
The provincial government had challenged the Sindh High Court verdict wherein it had commuted the death sentence of Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh – the man convicted of kidnapping and murdering Wall Street Journal journalist in 2002 – to a seven-year sentence.
The SHC had also acquitted three other accused namely Fahad Naseem, Sheikh Adil and Salman Saqib, who had been awarded life imprisonment in the case by an Anti-Terrorism Court in Karachi.
