A second additional sessions judge in Jacobabad on Monday sentenced two brothers to life imprisonment after they were found guilty of murdering one brother's wife in 2011.

A case had been registered against the brothers, Ghulam Haider Rind and Ali Haider Rind, for the murder of Ali's wife by the victim's mother, Gulabi Khatoon, in Jacobabad's Safar Mandarani village.

Wazira Khatoon was murdered because she had not had children.

Judge Owais Ahmed Abro announced the verdict in the murder case against the brothers and also imposed a fine of Rs200,000 on each accused.
