Pakistan has transferred funds and first salary to the widow of the Sri Lankan citizen Priyantha Kumara yesterday (17).
According to a statement issued by the PTI on Twitter, funds worth US$100,000, along with a first salary worth US$1,667, have been transferred to the bank account of the widow of Kumara in Sri Lanka.
Prime Minister Imran Khan had announced that the business community in Sialkot has accumulated $100,000 for the family of the deceased and that they will continue to send his salary to his widow.
Last year, Kumara was savagely lynched in Sialkot over blasphemy allegations.
Police had arrested more than 100 suspects, including two described as the main accused, and registered a case in this regard.
According to a handout issued by the Punjab police spokesman, a case has been registered under the provisions of the Anti-Terrorism Act with the police as the complainant.
