Before this hanging a series of death sentenced criminals have been hanged. Four convicts of General Headquarters (GHQ)’s and Musharraf attack case had been executed at Faisalabad district jail.
The death convicts were identified as Rashid Tipu, Ikhlas aka Roosi, Zubair Ahmed (belonging to Lodhra) and Ghulam Sarwar (belonging to Rawalpindi). They were convicted in the GHQ attack case and launching attack on former president Pervez Musharraf.
The executed criminals were sentenced to death by a military court after they were found guilty of the crime.
It is worth mentioning that two more death sentenced criminal’s hanging date has been postponed as Lahore high court delayed hanging of Shareef and Faiz and took strict notice against superintendent jail Faisalabad for taking the death warrants of Criminal Faiz from court as his appeal was still under hearing in supreme court.
Lahore high court had strictly ordered superintendent police Faisalabad jail as he he took the death warrant from court to hang the criminal Faiz who’s case was still under hearing.
The brother of criminal Faiz knocked the Lahore high court’s door as jail authorities were not following the orders of court and had got death warrants of Faiz from court without presenting the proper information before the court.
