SC to hear Mumtaz Qadri’s appeal on Monday


The Supreme Court has fixed the hearing date for Mumtaz Qadri’s appeal against the Islamabad High Court’s (IHC) death penalty verdict.

A two-judge bench of the apex court comprising Justice Dost Muhammad Khan and Justice Umar Ata Bandial will take up Qadri’s appeal on April 20 (Monday).

On March 9, the IHC had dismissed Qadri’s appeal against his two capital punishments awarded by an anti-terrorism court (ATC) in October 2011.
