Islamabad , Wed, 14 Nov 2012 ANI

Islamabad, Nov. 14 (ANI): The Islamabad High Court (IHC) has reserved its verdict on an application seeking to dismiss the Rimsha Masih 'blasphemy' case.

Rimsha, a 14-year-old Christian Pakistani girl, was arrested from a suburb of Islamabad on August 16 after a neighbour accused her of burning pages containing verses from the Quran, in breach of Pakistan's strict blasphemy laws, reports The Express Tribune.

On September 22, police investigating the case declared prayer leader Khalid Jadoon Chishti guilty, adding that there was no evidence against Rimsha and that he had framed her.

Rimsha and her family, who have been in fear for their lives since the blasphemy allegations, were moved to an undisclosed location after her release on bail on September 8. (ANI)
