Meanwhile in Faisalabad and Sahiwal, two more murder convicts Abid Botta and Nawaz were hanged.

Abid Botta was convicted for killing a man named Yasin in 1998, whereas Nawaz also killed a person over a trivial matter.

Further, since the moratorium on the death penalty was lifted five months ago, at least 151 people have been executed, but only 23 of them were convicted of a terrorism charge.

The rest of 114 have been hanged for dacoity, kidnapping for ransom, rape and murder for personal enmity in 21 jails across the country, according to information collected by a local newspaper.
