A teenage girl charged with killing her own sister was acquitted by a model court in Karachi after her parents pardoned her and her three accomplices, one of which was her fiancé at the time.

According to reports, eighteen-year-old Alveena along with her fiancé Mazhar Mehfooz had murdered her 16-year-old sister Aleena in December 2017 in what police claimed was a staged robbery.

According to the prosecution, the female accused and her fiancé had confessed to slitting the throat of the victim since she shared a friendship with one of the two accused brothers and allegedly helped both visit her home in the absence of her parents and to blackmail the female accused after getting her intimate pictures in their mobile phones.



According to the FIR registered at the time of the incident, two men broke into the house for robbery and stabbed the 16-year-old to death for putting up resistance. They also took away cash, jewellery and other valuables.

The two co-accused brothers Ahsan and Abbas were charged with blackmailing the female accused and forcing her to kill her own sister.

After recording evidence and hearing final arguments from both sides, an additional district and sessions judge acquitted the accused.

The judge also accepted the compromise applications moved by the accused persons and the parents of the victim. In their application and affidavits, the parents of the victim said that they had pardoned all four accused, including their daughter Alveena and her husband Mazhar, in the name of the Almighty, without any duress and pressure and waived off their right to claim compensation as well.
