A court in Quetta on Wednesday sentenced a police constable to death on charges of sexual abuse of children.
Tayyab Raza Kazmi, the convict, was arrested by police for sexually abusing three children in the Police Lines area of the Balochistan’s capital. The cases were registered against him in 2015, according to the police.
According to the judgement announced by Additional Sessions Judge Muhammad Ali Mubeen, Kazmi has been handed death sentence on two counts.
The police constable was taken into custody on complaints of the victims’ parents.
The trial had lasted for almost three years. The suspect was convicted by the court after evidence proved his abuse of children.
Following the verdict, police shifted the convict to Quetta’s District Jail.
