HARIPUR: A death row convict was hanged in the Haripur Central Jail here on Wednesday morning.
Chanzeb, a resident of Peshawar, had been awaiting execution since 2006 when Federal Shariat Court had awarded him death penalty for raping and murdering a minor girl who happened to be his sister-in-law in 1996.
After issuance of his black warrants the jail administration arranged his last meeting with his family on Tuesday. According to jail sources, his execution was carried out at 4.30am amid tight security.
According to deceased’s last will, his real sister received his body and took it to Peshawar for burial.
