Farkhunda’ case: Trial of 19 policemen today

AT Monitoring Desk-KABUL: As concerns loom over delay in trial of 19 policemen allegedly involved in Farkhunda’s case, the primary court on Monday announced that would decide about the policeman today (Tuesday).

Head of the primary court, Safiullah Mujaddidi, said the reason behind the delay was high volume of dossiers and paying profound attention into the issue. He added that they would put a full stop in the case and will end people’s concerns in this regard.

“We have almost ended our assessments on the dossiers and I hope that the trial of 19 police will be held on Tuesday,” quoted by Radio Azadi the primary court head said.

At least 49 people, including 19 policemen, were allegedly involved Farkhunda’s killing—a 27-year-old girl who lynched by an angry mob in Kabul for allegedly burning copy of the Holy Qur’an.

The primary court, two weeks back, announced its verdict about 12 people involved in the case, which four of them got death sentence.

Farkhunda’s case sparked anger countrywide. The Presidential Palace assigned a fact-finding team to probe the incident. The team later announced that Farkhunda was innocent.
