Two hangings stayed in Machh Jail, Balochistan

QUETTA: Hanging of two brothers who were scheduled to be executed early Thursday morning in Central Jail Machh in Bolan district, has been stayed after the two sides struck a deal an hour before the penalty.

According to the Machh jail sources, the convicts Ali Gul and his brother Mir Gul alias Meero murdered two persons–Imtiaz and Ghulam Hussain over old enmity after getting them down from a bus in August 10, 2001 in Bakhtiarabad.

Sessions court Sibbi heard a case against them with clauses of murder, attempted murder and anti-terrorism and awarded death sentence to them. However, the two sides reached a compromise which was accepted by the jail authorities, resulting in the stay of their death penalty.
