Murderer hanged to death in Lahore
LAHORE: Pakistan executed another death row convict in Lahore early Wednesday morning, ARY News reported.
According to details , a convicted murderer Zulfiqar Ali was hanged to death in Punjab Province’s capital city Lahore. Zulfiqar was executed in Kot Lakhpat Jail of Lahore city. He was convicted of killing two people back in 1998.
Pakistan lifted the moratorium on death penalty on Dec. 17, a day after Pakistani Taliban gunmen attacked Army Public School in Peshawar and killed 134 students and 19 adults.
The moratorium, in force since 2008, was initially lifted only in terrorism cases. But the government extended the order in March, directing provincial governments to proceed with hangings for all death row prisoners who have exhausted their appeals and clemency petitions.
