Khadija Siddiqui stabbing case: Punjab Police clarifies Shah Hussain’s ‘early release’

The Punjab Police Monday clarified its stance on the “early release” of Shah Hussain, who was convicted of stabbing Lahore woman Khadija Siddiqui 23 times five years ago.

Hussain had been convicted in 2018 after attacking Khadija Siddiqui and had been handed a five-year imprisonment sentence by the Supreme Court of Pakistan.

However, reports emerged he had been released last week after serving only three-and-a-half years in prison.

In a tweet, Khadija Siddiqui lashed out at the Punjab government, holding Fayyaz Chauhan responsible for not informing her of the development.

However, in a subsequent video message, Chauhan clarified that Shah Hussain did not get any relief from the president, the prime minister, the chief minister or himself.

The minister said that Hussain received the remissions as per the law and the Constitution.
