Pakistan: two murder convicts hanged in Sargodha and Sahiwal

April 23, 2015: two murder convicts were hanged in Sargodha and Sahiwal, raising the total number of executions to 97 since Pakistan reversed the self-imposed moratorium on the death penalty in December 2014 after the Taliban school massacre.

Gul Muhammad was executed in Sargodha’s District Jail. 

The convict had killed his brother-in-law back in 1999.

Muhammad Hanif was hanged in Sahiwal Central Jail. He had killed Assistant sub-inspector Ahsan Ullah in 2006 during a shootout with police. 

An Anti-Terrorism Court awarded him death penalty in 2007.
