I was awarded Ph. D in law by the University of Karachi, Sindh, Pakistan. I am serving as Assistant Sessions Judge, Sujawal (Thatta) Sindh, Pakistan. I am also a Resource Person at Sindh Judicial Academy, Karachi, Pakistan. My research interests are criminal law and law of evidence (Qanun-e-Shahadat Order, 1984) and my research work has mostly focused on these aspects of the criminal justice system of Pakistan. My published articles address topics including “Credibility of DNA evidence in Criminal Justice System” (published as S B L R 2017 Article 07) and “Importance of procedural law in dispensation of justice” (published in Federal Judicial Academy bulletin Oct-Dec 2011 and was awarded first position by the then Honourable Chief Justice of Pakistan). More broadly, I am interested in all aspects of criminal law, including issues relating to criminal procedure and sentencing. I am also interested in law of evidence, including the issues relating to procedure of production and appreciation of the evidence, acquired through modern devices and more importantly, reduction of delay in criminal trials. The topic of my research in the Ph. D thesis was “Credibility of evidence through modern devices for eradication of crime and terrorism”. I also did a one year “Correspondence Course in Islamic Law (Elementary)” from Shari’ah Academy, International Islamic University, Islamabad. Moreover, I have also had opportunities to participate in several other seminars/workshops/courses, relating to various aspects of criminal justice system of Pakistan.
