ISLAMABAD – The Prime Minister Office on Friday advised President of Pakistan to defer execution of a death-row prisoner Saulat Mirza by one month.
Mirza was scheduled to be hanged on April 1st in Machh jail of Balochistan. This will be the second likely deferment since his controversial video surfaced early this month. Our correspondent said that the Prime Minister Office has now sent its recommendation to the President of Pakistan to defer his execution by one more month. Mirza was sentenced to death by an anti-terrorism court in May 1999 for a triple homicide. He was convicted for killing Managing Director of Karachi Electric Supply Corporation –now K-Electric– Shahid Hamid, his driver Ashraf Brohi, and security guard Khan Akbar in a July 1997 shooting.
