Court returns petition against Saulat Mirza’s hanging

KARACHI: The Sindh High Court on Thursday returned the petition seeking withdrawal of hanging orders of convicted Saulat Mirza, ARY News reported.

Mirza’s sister had filed a petition challenging death warrant issued by an Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) of Karachi on Wednesday.

The writ branch of the SHC, while returning the petition, said the petition did not contain all the required legal documents.

The court asked the petitioner to resubmit the plea with attaching all legal documents.

It was said in the petition that an appeal against death sentence of Saulat Mirza is being heard in Supreme Court. The petitioner has requested for the withdrawal of the death warrant.

Mirza was sentenced to death by an anti-terrorism court in May 1999 for murdering the managing director of the then Karachi Electric Supply Corporation Shahid Hamid, his driver Ashraf Brohi and guard Khan Akbar in July 1997.
