PAKISTAN: SIX MORE HANGED IN VARIOUS JAILS ACROSS THE COUNTRY

March 25, 2015: six more death row prisoners were executed in various jails across Punjab and Sindh provinces, bringing the number of executions to 59 since an unofficial moratorium on capital punishment was lifted in December. All the six executed prisoners were charged with murder, and their bodies were handed over to their families.
Two murder convicts – Jalil alias Jalal Morejo and Abdul Razzaq Chohan – were hanged in the Sukkur Central Prison. Jalil had killed his cousin, Haroon Morejo, in Padidan in 1997 over an old feud, while Abdul had stabbed to death Aftab Merani, a seventh grade student at a local seminary at the Bachal Shah Miani area.
Another death row convict, Shahbaz Ali, was executed in the Central Jail of Sahiwal for killing a seven-year-old boy, Asim Baig, in 1998 over a land dispute.
Ghulam Yaseen was hanged at the New Central Jail in Bahawalpur, after being convicted of raping and murdering a woman in 2002.
Death row prisoner Muhammad Ayub was hanged in Lahore’s Kot Lakhpat Jail. He was sentenced to death for murder by the sessions court in Sheikhupura.
Another death row convict, Muhammad Khan, was sent to the gallows in the Mianwali Central Jail. He was involved in a murder in 2001.
Five executions of death row inmates were halted in the jails of Sahiwal, Mianwali and Bahawalpur, after they were pardoned by the victims’ families. Condemned prisoner Jafar Ali, who was set to be executed in Sahilwal Central Jail, got his sentence suspended, as the plaintiff agreed to forgive him. He was convicted of killing two of his own siblings in 1997, over a dispute pertaining to distribution of their hereditary property.
Death row convict Khubdar Shah’s execution was delayed in Mianwali Central Jail due to the reception of a “compromise agreement.”
Meanwhile, a sessions court judge in Mianwali halted the execution of another death row prisoner, Hab Dar Hussain, at the request of the plaintiffs. Hussain had killed two men in the year 2000 over a long-running personal feud.
The execution of two murder convicts – Khadim Hussain and Lonay Khan – scheduled in the New Central Jail of Bahawalpur was stopped. The execution of Khadim Hussain was stayed by the Lodhran district and sessions judge after reconciliation between the complainant and the prisoner’s father. The complainant pardoned the convict after getting 2 acre agriculture land as compensation of his nine-year-old son, who was murdered by Khadim in 2002.
The hanging of Lonay Khan was stopped by the Bahawalpur district and sessions judge, as the daughters of murdered Khan Muhammad filed a petition in the court in which they asked for staying the execution as both parties were trying for reconciliation.
