Pakistan SC Upholds Acquittal of Daniel Pearl’s Murder, US ‘Outraged’

United States is ‘Outraged’ after Pakistan’s top court upheld the acquittal of Daniel Pearl’s Murder and ordered the release of Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh who was convicted of masterminding the US journalist Daniel Pearl’s brutal murder by beheading  in 2002.

The US chief spokeswoman Jen Psaki told that US is Outraged by the decision by Pakistan’s Supreme Court.

This indicates underscoring the uneasy alliance between US and Pakistan that has been fractured a number of times due to Islamist militancy.

US asked Pakistan to review its legal options.

Daniel Pearl was the South Asia bureau chief for the Wall Street Journal who was kidnapped and brutally beheaded by jihadists.

The Brutal murder was filmed that caused international shock and outrage.

Daniel Pearl was researching on Islamist militants in the port city of Pakistan, Karachi from where he was kidnapped on 23rd January 2002 and about a month later after several ransom demands a graphic video showing Perl’s murder by beheading was given to officials.

Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh is a British-born jihadist and ex-student of London School of Economics was arrested for Pearl’s abduction.

Sheikh was sentenced to death by hanging by Karachi court after he admitted that Daniel Pearl was killed days before the gruesome video of his brutal beheading was released.

Daniel’s family called this Pakistani Court decision as ‘a travesty of justice’ as requested US administration to intervene in this case.
