RAWALPINDI: Chief of the Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa on Saturday signed death warrants of eleven hardcore terrorists handed down capital punishment by military courts, according to the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR).
The militants whose death warrants have been signed were involved in heinous terrorist activities, including attacks on security personnel and educational institutions.
The military’s media wing said the army chief also ratified life term awarded to three other terrorists.
In April, Gen Bajwa ratified the death sentences awarded to 10 hardcore terrorists, including two convicts in the murder case of famed Qawwali singer Amjad Sabri.
Two militants – Ishaq alias Bobby and Asim alias Capri – convicted of their involvement in the killing of Amjad Sabri were said to be affiliated with outlawed Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LeJ).
Amjad Sabri was assassinated on June 22, 2016 in the month of Ramazan. He was travelling from his home to a television studio when armed motorbike riders pulled up beside his car and opened fire on him.
