The court in its judgment today directed the authorities to exhume the body of Aamir and return it to his family for last rites. The court also directed the authorities to pay Rs 5 lakh compensation to the family.
Pertinently, the bodies of Altaf Ahmad Butt and Dr Mudasir Gull were exhumed and returned to the families following massive demonstrations against their extrajudicial killings. KMS—20M
