Terrorists Involved in APS Massacre Hanged in Kohat
PESHAWAR: Wednesday witnessed hanging in Kohat of four death-row convicts involved in the Army Public School attack in December last year.
The hanging comes two days after Army chief General Raheel Sharif signed black warrants of Maulvi Abdus Salam, Hazrat Ali, Mujeebur Rehman and Sabeel alias Yahya nearly a year after the horrific massacre.
This was the first such sentence endorsed by the army chief after an order of the Supreme Court on August 2015 which gave legal cover to the establishment of military courts.
The move came after President Mamnoon Hussain rejected clemency appeals of the four convicts on receiving the premier’s advice for the same on November 20.
Earlier, a military court sentenced all four terrorists to death after the government lifted the moratorium on the penalties in the country under the National Action Plan.
