KASUR - The execution of capital punishment of a murder accused was stopped in District few minutes before after reconciliation between the two families on Thursday.

Murderer Ramazan had shot dead police constable Mukhtiar Ahmed and injured sub-inspector Niamat Ali in 2004. An Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) convicted him for the murder and sentenced him to death. His mercy plea was rejected by President of Pakistan on May 29, 2017. He was to be hanged Thursday morning when widow of Constable Mukhtiar Ahmed forgave him and consequently implementation of his death penalty was stopped.
