In a shocking turn of events, the Punjab Law Minister, Rana Sanaullah, has been reported as saying that the CIA Contractor, Raymond Davis, has been released by the court after being pardoned by families of two men he shot dead.
The families have, reportedly, accepted “blood money”, against the death of their family members.
Earlier today the session court had indicted Davis for double murder.
“The family members of the slain men appeared in the court and independently verified they had pardoned him (Davis),” provincial law minister Rana Sanaullah told a private television.
Blood Money, known as Qisas or Diyyat in Islam, is “money paid out to the family of victims.”
Raymond Davis had killed two Pakistani men in the month of January.
A five-car-convoy from the US Consulate in Lahore, reportedly, has already taken Raymond Davis from the Kot Lakhpat Jail, hwere he had been detained for the past two months.
