A Chinese court has sentenced a man involved in the murder of a Pakistani student to death

A court in the eastern Chinese province of Jiangsu has sentenced a Chinese man to death for killing a Pakistani student.

According to the Associated Press of Pakistan (APP), Pakistan's official news agency, Moizuddin was studying at Nanchang University.
And on July 11, 2018, a 28-year-old Chinese man named Kong killed a Pakistani citizen with a series of knives after a minor altercation.

Police said the reason for the altercation was that Moizuddin was injured by Kong's motorcycle, after which there was a minor altercation, but Kong brought a fruit-cutting knife from a nearby market and attacked Moizuddin.

Nanjing's Intermediate People's Court rejected all arguments presented in Kong's defense, calling it an "international murder" and sentencing him to death.

The court said the killing should be considered an international injury.

"As an adult, Kong should have known that stabbing someone in the chest could lead to death," the court ruled.

The court ruling added that "Kong still stabbed the victim repeatedly in the chest and back."

The court said Kang's conduct made it clear that he wanted the victim (Moizuddin) dead.

The court rejected the defendant's defense of his guilt, saying there was no evidence that he had argued.

It is to be noted that after committing the murder, Kang took refuge in the house of his female friend but the police arrested Kang and his friend Shao within 8 hours.

The court said Shaw was 18 at the time and did not know at the time of Kang's asylum that Moizuddin had died.

The court sentenced Shaw to 17 months in prison for harboring a murder suspect.
