RAWALPINDI: Dr Khalid, who had been convicted for his involvement in an assassination attempt on former president General (retd) Pervez Musharraf, was hanged in Adiala jail in Rawalpindi on Friday evening, Express News reported.

His execution comes after the government had lifted a moratorium on executions of terrorists in the country.

Late last month, Dr Usman, a former soldier of the army’s medical corps and the mastermind of the attack on the Pakistan Army headquarters in 2009, and Arshad Mehmood, convicted for the assassination attempt on Musharraf were executed in Faisalabad.

Days after that, four prisoners were executed at the tightly guarded Faisalabad jail for their role in the Musharraf attack.

On December 31, 2014, Niaz Muhammad, convicted of orchestrating the murder attempt on Musharraf, was executed at Peshawar Central Jail.

Most of those hanged for attempt to assassinate Musharraf were also involved in other deadly terrorist activities. These cases were in civilian courts for long but as usual remained pending.

A fall guy has been executed in the stage-managed Musharraf "assassination plot". The assassination drama very likely orchestrated by the Establishment agencies to convince the West that Mush was indeed fighting the terrorists and not playing double-games as many in the West were reporting.
