Pakistan court grants bail to two accused in Sikh leader murder case


Pakistan court grants bail to two accused in Sikh leader murder case

A Pakistani court on Monday granted bail to two accused in the murder case of prominent Sikh community leader and rights activist Charanjeet Singh.

The counsel for the two accused, Tariq and Shehryar, told the court that they were arrested in the case without any evidence or complaint from the Sikh leader's family.

The court accepted the bail application of the two accused and ordered their release on bail.

Singh, 52, was killed on May 29 when a gunman barged into his grocery store on the outskirts of Peshawar and shot him dead.

The Sikh leader, who had shifted to Peshawar with his family nearly two decades ago, was a highly respected figure in the region and was known for promoting religious harmony and discouraging violence.
