On Monday, the Special Gender-Based Violence Court (Central) rendered a decision in the case of Shabana Kausar, who was charged with attacking her ex-husband Muhammad Usman with acid.

The judge found Kausar guilty and gave him a 14-year prison term. Additionally, she was ordered to pay a fine of Rs. 1 million; if she failed to do so, she would have to serve an additional six months in jail. The prosecutor has proven their case against Kausar, the court ruled.

Although the court extended the benefit of Section 382-B of the criminal procedure legislation, Kausar was still required to return to prison to complete the remainder of her sentence (time of detention to be considered when awarding term of imprisonment).

The public prosecutor testified throughout the trial that Usman had married Kausar, but it was later revealed that Kausar had been married twice before and was still seeing one of her ex-husbands.

Kausar approached Usman after their divorce and threatened to kill herself unless he remarried her. Usman suffered severe burns when Kausar poured acid at him on the day of the attack. On the other side, Kausar denied the allegations and asserted that the prosecution’s witness testimony was untrue.
