Two prisoners hanged till death in Pakistan

KARACHI: Two death row convicts were sent to gallows in Punjab and Balochistan provinces of Pakistan early Wednesday morning, ARY News reported.

According to details, two death row prisoners namely Zulfiqar and Moosa met their end in jails of Balochistan and Punjab provinces of Pakistan.

Zulfiqar was executed in Faisalabad Central Jail and Muhammad Moosa was hanged in Mach Central Jail.

Zulfiqar was convicted of killing a taxi driver back in the year 2000 while Moosa murdered a man in 2005.

Pakistan lifted the moratorium on death penalty on Dec. 17, a day after Pakistani Taliban gunmen attacked Army Public School in Peshawar and killed 134 students and 19 adults.

The moratorium, in force since 2008, was initially lifted only in terrorism cases. But the government extended the order in March, directing provincial governments to proceed with hangings for all death row prisoners who have exhausted their appeals and clemency petitions.
