RAWALPINDI: Malik Mumtaz Qadri, the man who killed Punjab Governor Salmaan Taseer, in his official confessional statement accepted that he killed the governor over his statement regarding the country’s blasphemy law and said that he had acted alone.

Qadri, in his confessional statement presented in the court, said that he killed the Punjab governor for his remarks to change the blasphemy law, adding that he had acted as an individual and ruled out the involvement of any religious group in his actions.

He said that he decided to kill Taseer when he came to know in a religious gathering in Sadiqabad three days before the incident that the governor had termed the blasphemy law a ‘black law’. Anti-Terrorist Court Judge Malik Akram Awan awarded 14-day judicial remand of Qadri and sent him to Adiala Jail.
