ISLAMABAD- Security institutions have asked the Interior Ministry to immediately take steps for the implementation of the death sentences awarded to dangerous terrorists by the courts.
Those waiting for their death sentences in different jails of the country include top terrorists and criminals including Niaz Ahmad, Fazal Hameed, Malik Noor Badshah, Ahmad Umer Saeed Sheikh, Aqeel alias Dr Usman and others.
In a letter to the Interior Ministry, the security institutions said that if the sentences were not implemented, these dangerous terrorists could become security risk in the future. The communication recommended that death sentences awarded to these terrorists should be implemented without
considering the reaction from their organizations.
Sources said that presently more than 300 terrorists were awaiting implementation of death sentences in different jails and there is every possibility that terrorists may attack these jails to get them escape as had been witnessed in Bannu and DI Khan jails in the past. The officials feared that top terrorists by sitting in jails could plan terrorist attacks.
