Army Chief General Raheel Sharif on Tuesday confirmed 11 death sentences awarded by military courts over a series of attacks that killed dozens of security officials and civilians in recent years. Terrorists including Zia-ul-Haq, Fazal-e-Rabbi, Muhammad Sher, Umer Zada, Latif-ur-Rehman, Muhammad Adil, Israr Ahmed, Abdul Majeed, Hazrat Ali, Mian Said Azam and Qaiser Khan were tried by military courts.

According to ISPR, Ziaul Haq S/O Wali Khan was an active member of the banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP). He was involved in attacking LEAs which resulted in death of Deputy Inspector General of Police Fayyaz Sumbal, Assistant Sub Inspector Raza Khan, several other police officials and Inspector Kamran Nazir of ISI. He was also involved in sectarian killings.

TTP terrorist Fazal-e-Rabbi S/O Fazal Ghafoor was involved in attacking the armed forces which resulted in death of Maj Abid Majeed and injuries to several soldiers.

Banned outfits’ operatives are being tried by military courts which were established unanimously by the Parliament after attack on Army Public School (APS) Peshawar in December 2014.

The government on December 17, 2014 lifted a six-year moratorium on death penalty. Since then, the authorities have executed more than 400 convicts.
