Additional District and Sessions Judge Vidushi Singh awarded life imprisonment to Naseema yesterday for getting her husband Abdul Hameed murdered by her paramour Liaqat as the former objected to their illicit relations.
The Judge also imposed a fine of Rs 20,000 on her and issued arrest warrant for the other absconding accused.
Hameed, resident of village Khushalpur was murdered on March 16, 2009 when he was sleeping near his tube well.
His wife Naseema lodged a complaint with the police about it the next morning.
During investigations, it was found that Naseema had illicit relations with Liaqat, who was a distant relative of her husband.
