HARIPUR: The model court, Haripur, has awarded death sentence to a convict charged in a murder of a faith healer.

According to the prosecution record, Dilfraz of Makhan village had gunned down Mohammad Rafiq, a faith healer, on July 12, 2015, on the suspicion of his involvement in casting spell on his wife and other family members, which often allegedly led to marital dispute.

The case was heard in the court of additional session judge and it was transferred to the model court last month. After hearing arguments from both sides, model court judge Sajjad Ahmed Jan handed down death penalty to the convict.
