Pakistani Student Killed by Mob on Campus

21 April 2017, 02:37 | Darnell Patrick

Eight other suspects arrested in the same case had already been remanded in police custody for four days.

Abdullah, who was also accused of blasphemy in a university notice, told the court that neither he nor Mashal had committed blasphemy. However, its authenticity can not be verified by RT. The Interior Ministry also threatened to block all social media websites with blasphemous content. He said they would be tried by the anti-terrorism courts. However, AFP cited university sources as saying he was instead thrown from the second floor of his student residency.

However, he said that several posts relating Mashal Khan surfaced in later hours of the murder for which police has sought help of Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) to have expert opinion on the matter.

A total of 12 people have been arrested in the incident while the police is searching for more suspects.

"We are investigating the case but at this stage we can not say anything" about the motive for the attack, Mr Saeed said. Insulting the Prophet Muhammad is punished as a capital crime, and hundreds are now on death row for allegedly doing so.

The murdered student has been identified as Mashal Khan, who was accused of posting blasphemous messages on social media.

However, Pakistan's government has been vocal about blasphemy in recent months, with Sharif issuing an order in March for the removal of content deemed blasphemous online and threatening "strict punishment" for those violating the law.

The military has denied any part in the activists' disappearances. It was unclear which militant group wanted to target Easter Sunday in Lahore, where more than 70 people were killed in a 2016 suicide bombing at a park, which was crowded with Christians and Muslims at the time.
