Blasphemy case: Pak SC upholds Asiya Bibi’s acquittal

Jan 29, 2019 18:43 IST

Pakistan’s Supreme Court has upheld its ruling to acquit a Christian woman accused of blasphemy. Asiya Bibi, who had been sentenced to death by a trial court, was acquitted by the top court last October sparking countrywide violent protests. Security has been put on high alert across Pakistan fearing another round of violent protests against the final verdict which sets Bibi free. She is likely to leave the country as her family fears for safety.
