Husband of slain Pakistani singer handed death sentence

The husband of slain Pakistani singer Ghazala Javed has been sentenced to death for her murder. Javed was shot dead along with her father in a drive-by gun attack in Peshawar on 18 June, 2012.
Her husband, Jehangir Khan, was convicted of masterminding the killings, and he was handed a death sentence during a court hearing on Monday (15Dec13).
Khan was also fined $604,000 (£403,000) for the two killings, and another $8,628 (£5,752) over injuries sustained by Javed’s sister, Farhat, during the attack.
Khan’s lawyers have said their client will appeal against the sentence.
Javed, a popular musician in Pakistan, Dubai and Afghanistan, married the businessman in 2010, but filed for divorce in 2011.
