FAISALABAD: Arrangements have been finalised for four more convicts to be sent to the gallows within the next few hours.

The convicts, Ghulam Nabi, Abdul Malik, Nawazish Ali and Mushtaq, were shifted to a district jail from the central jail in Faisalabad under tight security.

They were convicted for involvement in an attack on former president General (retd) Pervez Musharraf.

Nine militants were awarded capital punishment in the Musharraf attack case of which five have already been hanged in Faisalabad.

Further, the mastermind of the GHQ attack, Aqeel alias Dr Usman, was also hanged in Faisalabad as Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif allowed capital punishment for those who have already been sentenced to death in terrorism cases.

PM Nawaz took the step to lift a six-year moratorium on death penalties following Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan’s attack on the Army Public School and College in Peshawar on Tuesday, which left 148 people, most of them children, dead.

@ Parvez because in this particular case, army was responsible for investigation and capturing the terrorists. In other cases where civillians are martyred, our ineligible police is supposed to capture and prosecute terrorists
