Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa has endorsed death sentences for 30 terrorists including APS attack convicts, Inter-Services Public Relations said on Wednesday.
According to a statement issued by the ISPR, the men awarded capital punishment by military courts were involved in heinous offences related to terrorism including the attack on the Army Public School in Peshawar on December 16, 2014.
“These terrorists were involved in committing heinous offences relating to terrorism including attack on APS Peshawar, kidnapping and slaughtering soldiers of Frontier Constabulary, attack on Saidu Sharif airport, killing of innocent civilians, attacking Armed Forces of Pakistan and Law Enforcement Agencies,” the communiqué read.
Further, ISPR said the process of sentencing terrorists was expedited in wake of the ongoing nationwide Radd-ul-Fasaad military offensive.
