Supreme Court has delivered the verdict into Mukhtaran Mai rape case upholding the LHCs verdict, acquitting all the accused except one Abdul Khaliq. A three member bench headed by Justice Shakirullah Jan and comprising Justice Nasir ul Mulik and Justice Saqib Nisar Thursday heard the Mukhtaran Mai rape case. According to the SC ruling, Abdul Khaliq will undergo the complete length of his life sentence term; he will be given benefit under clause-382 of criminal law. The court released all other accused. It should be mentioned here that Lahore High Court (LHC) turned his death sentence into life imprisonment, which was upheld by the SC in its ruling on Thursday. The SC had reserved the judgment of Mukhtaran Mai case on January 27, which was delivered on Thursday after six years of suo motu case. It should be mentioned here that Mukhtar Mai was allegedly gang-raped in Meerwala locality of Muzaffargarh in 2002 at the behest of a local Punchayat. An anti-terrorism court (ATC) in Dera Ghazi Khan sentenced five out of the six accused to death and fined them, but the LHCs Multan Bench acquitted five of the accused. At least 14 people were named as accused in the case; eight of them were freed by ATC; while, the remaining six were awarded death sentence. Later on, LHC set free five of the six accused. On this, the SC took suo motu notice of the case. Also, Mai Mukhtaran filed separate appeals at the apex court. On the other hand Mukhtaran Mai expressed her disappointment over the Supreme Court verdict in the gang rape case while many Human Rights Organizations also expressed discontent over verdict. Talking to a privte TV, she said " I doesn't trust any court except the court of God," a tearful Mukhtaran Mai said after hearing the apex court decision at her home in Multan. "I had recorded correct statement against the accused but the police didn't repeat the statement to me," Mukhtara Mai said. She said the medical report also backed her statement. She said she would consult with her lawyer for appeal against the court verdict. Mukhtaran Mai said now she would take recourse to Allahs court only. Mukhtaran Mai said she has lost confidence in judicial system; now it is Allah Who she would appeal to. Meanwhile, various human rights groups also expressed discontent over the verdict of Mukhtaran Mai case. Human Rights activist Farzana Bari also voiced her dissatisfaction over the verdict, saying the verdict disappointed all the women of the country.
