PAKISTAN: TWO MORE DEATH ROW CONVICTS HANGED
June 11, 2015: At least two murder convicts were executed in Faisalabad and Haripur, raising the total number of executions to at least 161 since Pakistan reversed the self-imposed moratorium on the death penalty in December 2014 after the Taliban school massacre.
Death row convict Shahid Shafiq was hanged in Faisalabadâs District Jail for killing his aunt in 1996 over a domestic dispute.
Another death row prisoner, Gul Muhammad, was executed in the Central Jail of Haripur. Gul Muhammad was awarded death sentence by an anti terrorist court in Mardan. (Sources: Dunya News, 11/06/2015)
