Notorious terrorists of takfiri ASWJ (aka LeJ and Sipah-e-Sahaba) namely Aqeel alias Dr Usman and Arshad Mehmood were hanged to death in Faisalabad on Friday night, in the first capital punishment carried out in the country since Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif lifted the moratorium on the death penalty.

Aqeel alias Dr Usman was not a medical doctor but a former soldier of the army’s medical corps. He was part of the team of terrorists that attacked headquarters of the Pakistan Army in 2009 in Rawalpindi. Arshad Mehmood was executed for an assassination attempt on former military ruler, General (retd.) Pervez Musharraf.
“Aqeel alias Usman and Arshad were hanged in Faisalabad Jail at 9:00 pm,” a Punjab govt source told Reuters. Security had been tightened at Faisalabad's central and district prisons ahead of the executions.
The black warrant for Dr Usman was signed by Army Chief General Raheel Sharif late on Thursday night.
The prime minister had lifted the moratorium a day after terrorists attacked Peshawar's Army Public School, killing 141 people, most of them children.
Eleven soldiers had lost their lives in the Oct 10, 2009 attack when 10 heavily armed militants wearing suicide vests stormed the army's General Headquarter (GHQ) holding off commandos for hours.
Dr Usman, who was caught injured during the Oct 10 raid on the army headquarters by takfiri militants of banned Sipah-e-Sahaba (ASWJ) and Taliban, was sentenced to death in 2011 by a military court which had awarded prison terms to others in the GHQ attack case.
Mehmood, who was a trooper, was among the five sentenced to be hanged for their role in an assassination attempt on Musharraf’s life in late 2003 masterminded by Al Qaeda that was a creation of CIA-Saudi monarchy.
