ISLAMABAD – The Supreme Court (SC) has announced verdict against the military court decision of awarding death sentence to three terrorists.

Supreme Court has stayed the execution of three convicts involved in militancy, suspending the death sentence awarded by a military court.

Convicts – Tahir Ali, Habibul Rehman, and Saifullah — were sentenced to death on account of killing two army officials in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in 2009.

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

The Peshawar High Court (PHC) had earlier rejected the convicts’ appeals; the hearing of the case was postponed for an indefinite period of time.
