Judge, wife sentenced to one year in prison in Tayyaba torture case

IHC had reserved judgement on March 28 in the case pertaining to the assault, confinement, ill-treatment and abandoning of a 10-year-old housemaid by ADSJ Khan, and his wife Maheen.

The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Tuesday sentenced a former additional district and sessions judge and his wife to a year in prison in the child maid torture case.


The court also imposed a Rs50,000 fine on Raja Khurram Ali Khan and wife Maheen Zafar, and they were arrested from inside the courtroom after the verdict was given.
Shortly after the verdict, the defence counsel submitted a bail plea. Accepting the request, the court fixed hearing of the plea at 1pm on Tuesday. In its request, the defence has shown intent to challenge the verdict in the Supreme Court. “It is our fundamental right to file an appeal,” reads the plea.
IHC had reserved judgement on March 28 in the case pertaining to the assault, confinement, ill-treatment and abandoning of a 10-year-old housemaid by ADSJ Khan, and his wife Maheen.
Case History
Khan and his wife Maheen were booked and charged with assaulting, confining, ill-treating, neglecting, abandoning, harming and injuring the minor housemaid. They have been accused of keeping the girl in wrongful confinement, burning her hand, beating her with a ladle, detaining her in a storeroom, and threatening her with even worse. The couple had pleaded ‘not guilty’ after they were indicted and stood trial.
During the course of the trial, two ADSJs, Atta Rabbani and Raja Asif Mehmood, and the lawyer Raja Zahoorul Hassan tried to steer the couple out of trouble. Lawyer Hassan had mocked the reporters standing outside the courtroom, telling them to “recite Fateha over the case”.
The Supreme Court also took suo moto notice of the incident, voicing serious concerns at the loopholes in the ‘compromise’ reached under questionable circumstances, the hasty handover of the child maid and the suspicious role of the counsel for her guardians. SC while declaring it a “sordid incident” had overruled the pardon granted to the couple by the girl’s parents in the name of God.
