LAHORE: A member of a proscribed organisation, convicted for sectarian killing by a military court, has challenged his death sentence before the Lahore High Court (LHC).

The military court had awarded death sentence to Muhammad Sabir Shah for abetting murder of a lawyer, Syed Arshad Ali, in Lahore.

The chief of army staff confirmed his death sentence last week.

Laila Bibi, mother of the convict, filed the appeal through Advocate Zia Ali Bajwa and stated that her son was a juvenile (below 18 years) and was not given the right to fair trial.

She said neither was he allowed to meet his family members, nor given a chance to engage counsel to plead his case.

She asked the court to set aside the military court’s verdict for being “unjust and unfair”.
