Kasur rape and murder convicted gets 12 more death sentences: Media Report

The convict in a high-profile rape and murder case of a minor girl in Pakistan's Kasur city was given 12 more death sentences by a special anti-terrorism court in another three cases of child sexual abuse, according to a media report.

Imran Ali, who was already awarded four counts of the death penalty, one life term, 7-year jail term and Rs 4.1 million in fines back in February for raping and murdering the seven-year-old girl, had confessed sexually abusing at least another eight girls, Dawn newspaper reported.

The anti-terrorism court (ATC) yesterday awarded Ali, currently incarcerated and on death row for the rape and murder of the minor girl, the death penalty on 12 more counts for the rape and murder of three other girls, the report said.

Ali was also fined Rs 6 million out of which Rs 3 million were directed to be handed to the families of the victims as 'blood money'.

Earlier this year, the rape and murder of the minor girl in Kasur had sparked outrage and protests across the country.

Ali was nabbed by authorities on January 23 following a DNA-match.

He was found to be a serial killer and had confessed to his crimes on the day of his indictment that came through the Lahore High Court (LHC).

On February 17, he was given a death sentence for abduction, rape and murder in the Kasur girl case.
