Raymond Davis found guilty of murder: Police


Lahore police say their investigation into a fatal shooting of two citizens by US national Raymond Davis in January has found that the man did not act in self-defense.

Addressing a press conference here, CCPO Lahore Aslam Tareen said that Raymond Davis carried out “an intentional and cold-blooded murder.”

The investigation was carried out on pure merit which led the police to the conclusion that Davis was guilty of murder, he said.

He told the police submitted the provisional Challan requesting the court to take action against the man under the article 302 of Pakistan Penal Code.

Davis’ arrest has strained U.S.-Pakistan relations.

Washington insists Davis shot two Pakistanis dead because they were trying to rob him.

Earlier Friday, a Pakistani judge ordered the American remain in custody for 14 more days and also told the government it must clarify whether the man has diplomatic immunity.
