Pak Army gives death sentence to 10 terrorists

Islamabad [Pakistan]: Pakistan Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa confirmed the death sentence of at least 10 terrorists, who were found guilty of carrying out suicide attacks in the country in the last few years.

The punishment for the terrorists was announced by a military court today.

“The convicts were involved in terrorist activities, killing of innocent civilians, attacks on educational institutions, slaughtering of soldiers, attacking law enforcement agencies (LEAs) and the armed forces of Pakistan”, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement.

The terrorists were involved in the killing of 41 personnel while injuring 33 others. They have confessed their crimes before the magistrate and the trial court before the quantum of punishment was given by the military court.

“Arms and ammunition were also recovered from them earlier. Besides these 10 terrorists, another three of them have been awarded imprisonment for a varying period by the military court”, the ISPR statement added.

The Pakistan Army launched Operation Radd-ul-Fasaad, a military offensive against the ‘latent threat of terrorism’, in February last year. (ANI)
