Four death row inmates walk the gallows in Punjab


Four death row convicts were sent to the gallows in jails across Punjab early on Saturday.

Mohammad Saleem, a resident of Faisalabad’s Millat Colony, was executed at Faisalabad Central Jail. He was sentenced to death by a sessions court in Faisalabad in 2004 for murdering his cousin.

Meanwhile, Abdul Ghaffar from Muzaffargarh was executed in Multan Central Jail for killing three persons, including his wife in 1990. Wazir, a resident of Mianwali, was hanged in Sahiwal Central Jail for committing a murder in Rajanpur in 1991 over a domestic dispute.
