The two prisoners were transferred to solitary confinement on 19 July with another prisoner ‘Baitullah Motalebi’. Motalebi has been returned to the Counselling Ward after persuading “blood owners (Oliya-e-dam)” to give him time for paying the blood money (diyat).
The three prisoners had previously been arrested on charges of premeditated murder and sentenced to retaliation (execution).
