PAKISTAN: DEATH SENTENCE REVOKED ONE DAY AHEAD OF EXECUTION
December 26, 2016: Ghulam Abbas Suhani had to be hanged on December 27 but the execution was stopped today, just one day ahead of the due date, as the elders of the area brought both the parties to the table and helped them settle to a reconciliation, reported Daily Dunya.
According to details, Saleem Suhani had murdered Ghulam Abbas Suhaniâs elder brother Mohammad Ramzan. Saleem was jailed for this murder but when his brother Fauji Muhammad Esa went to DG Khan, Ramzanâs younger brother Ghulam Abbas murdered him inside the court. He also presented himself for arrest.
The court sentenced him to death. And the sentence was to be carried out on December 27 but the family members and elders of the community helped them reconcile.
Ghulam Abbasâs family paid Saleemâs family with Rs 16.5 million, which is equal to the price of 100 camels, according to Sharia.
Local MPA Javed Akhtar Lund, Chairman Rehan Khan Lund, Maulana Umar Mujahid and Mumtaz Sukhani played a critical role in the reconciliation. (Sources: Daily Dunya, 26/12/2016)
