Khanu Nohani, the convicted murderer in the Tania Khaskheli murder case, has been sentenced to life imprisonment. This long-awaited verdict comes after more than five years of legal proceedings and is being seen as a significant moment in the fight against criminal impunity in Sindh.
According to the PASBAN Democratic Party, the sentencing of Khanu Nohani marks a crucial victory for the victim’s family and advocates. Tania’s younger sister, Dua Khaskheli, expressed mixed feelings about the verdict. While she expressed gratitude that the murderer was not acquitted, she believed that the crime warranted a death sentence. Dua Khaskheli also acknowledged the support of the Chairman of the Pasban Democratic Party, Altaf Shakur, and others who stood by the family throughout their pursuit of justice.
Pasban Hyderabad President Arshad Arain, also present at the court, highlighted the broader issue of criminals in Sindh being protected by influential politicians. He stressed that liberating oppressed citizens from such oppressors is a primary mission of the constabulary, indicating a push towards ending the “rotten environment” in the region.
This case has been a focal point in highlighting issues of justice and political influence in criminal cases in Sindh. The presence of Hyderabad’s police chief Arshad Arain and his wife in the court, along with advocate Samad Khaskheli, underscores the significance of this verdict in the local justice system. The sentencing is not only a victory for Tania Khaskheli’s family but also for those advocating for judicial fairness and the fight against political protection of criminals in Sindh.
