Death row convict hanged at Kot Lakhpat Jail


A death row convict was sent to the gallows at the Kot Lakhpat Jail Lahore early Wednesday morning.

Death row prisoner Mushtaq had killed a man named Abdullah in 2000. Mushtaq’s dead body was later handed over to the relatives.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif lifted the moratorium on the death penalty on December 17, 2014, a day after Taliban gunmen attacked a school and killed 134 students and 19 adults.
