ISLAMABAD: Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Justice Asif Saeed Khan Khosa observed on Wednesday that every heinous crime does not fall in the ambit of terrorism.

The CJP said this while heading a three-member bench, which took up the murder of Ghulam Muhammad by one Kalay Khan on the court premises. The Supreme Court acquitted Kalay Khan in the case.

The CJP, while inquiring the government counsel, observed, “You should correct your definition of terrorism as terror related cases have piled up.” The CJP observed, “We will give decision this month upon definition of terrorism.”

The CJP observed that the murder was committed due to personal enmity. “Several misunderstandings regarding terrorism will be removed from the court’s definition on terrorism,” the CJP further observed.

The trial court had awarded death sentence to Kalay Khan while the high court awarded him life imprisonment.
