ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court (SC) on Thursday dismissed a review appeal filed by Mukhtaran Mai against the acquittal of 13 people accused in her gang-rape case. The court also stated that the points raised in the petition may be looked at in another case. In March 2005, five convicts were acquitted by a Lahore High Court bench while one’s sentence was converted into life imprisonment. Mai filed a review petition against the judgment in May 2011. In her review petition, Mai has pleaded that the court should review and recall the judgment and grant relief as prayed in the appeal.
