SC suspends death penalty of three convicted by military courts

ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court (SC) on Wednesday suspended the death sentences of three people who were convicted by military courts.

Suspending the death sentences, a three-member bench headed by Justice Azmat Saeed issued a notice to the Interior Ministry in this regard.

The three convicts — Tahir Ali, Habibul Rehman and Saifullah — were accused of killing two army officials in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in 2009.

The convicts’ appeals were earlier rejected by the Peshawar High Court (PHC).

The hearing of the case was adjourned for an indefinite period of time.
