The Criminal Court on Tuesday passed capital punishment on two men involved in the murder of Ahmed Mirza Ibrahim six years ago.

Mirza was murdered in a gang violence that took place in the suburb of Villimale in April 2011. The two men sentenced to death are Abdulla Nazeef and Mohamed Shifau while a third man, Ali Rifshan, was acquitted over lack of evidence.

According to the verdict read by Chief Judge Abdul Bari Yoosuf presiding over the case, Nazeef and Shifau were convicted of Mirza’s murder based on witness testimonies and Mirza’s medico-legal report which confirmed that his death was caused by the injuries he sustained in the attack. The verdict further stated that the act of violence took place to exact vengeance.
