ISLAMABAD - Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Raheel Sharif has signed death warrants of four dangerous terrorists, said an ISPR statement yesterday.

The terrorists were involved in slaughtering innocent people, suicide attacks and kidnapping for ransom, the statement said.

Death warrants of Noor Saeed, Murad Khan, Inayatullah and Asraruddin have been issued.

Last week, the warrants of Maulvi Abdus Salam, Hazrat Ali, Mujeebur Rehman and Sabeel alias Yahya were signed by the army chief, and they were hanged days later in a Kohat jail.

The men were convicted by a military court and hanged just days ahead of the first anniversary of the APS attack on December 16.

The army chief also last week signed black warrants of four hardcore terrorists involved in Army Public School (APS) Peshawar massacre who were sentenced to death by a military court.
