Zainab murder case: Father moves LHC for public execution of Imran Ali

Published: October 13, 2018


The father of Zainab, raped and murdered by Imran Ali, moved the Lahore High Court (LHC) to publicly execute the convict, Express News reported on Saturday.

The black warrant for Imran’s execution was issued on Friday and the convict will be executed on October 17.

Haji Amin, Zainab’s father, filed the appeal under Section 22 of the Anti-Terrorism Act 1997, which allows a “convict to be executed publicly”.

In other cases, Imran was awarded death sentence on four counts and life imprisonment on one count. The sentence was awarded by Judge Ahmad.

    @Syed: Making a public spectacle will hardly deter other individuals having such a bent. Better to round up all the convicts family members for execution and bulldoze their property.Recommend
