The suspects accused of lynching Pakistani Christian couple and burning them alive in a brick kiln after accusing them of blasphemy have been granted bail.

Shahzad Masih and pregnant Shama Bibi were murdered in November 2014.

Yousaf Gujjar, and three others charged in connection with their deaths and accused of inciting a crowd to beat and torture the couple, have been granted bails.

This is despite the fact that the Deputy Inspector General of Police Kasur has admitted that were it not for these four individuals, the atrocity would never have occurred.

The parents to three young children were brutally killed after they were accused of desecrating the Quran.

Gujjar is the owner of the brick kiln where Shahzad and Shama worked and were burnt.

On November 10, an anti-terrorism court remanded him and three others in custody, they applied for bail at the time, but the applications were refused.
