The killer katora
In a case State vs Naveed, this utensil (Katora) was produced in the court as the weapon of offence.
Naveed had allegedly killed his brother-in-law by smashing the ice-filled Katora on the deceased's head, following a domestic quarrel. We were on the defense side. The prosecution failed to produce a concrete evidence and resultantly the judge gave 10-year rigorous punishment to Naveed, instead of pronouncing death penalty.
Naveed is likely to be acquitted by the high court, if he goes for an appeal.
