Another Convict in Assassination Attempt Case of Musharraf Executed

Karachi, Dec 31: A former Air Force junior technician, convicted in the assassination attempt case of Pakistan's former Chief of Army Staff General Pervez Musharraf has been executed at Peshawar Central Prison.

Niaz Mohammad was sentenced to death over an attempt to kill Musharraf in Rawalpindi in 2003, reported Dawn News.

Niaz Mohammad lived in Swabi district and was kept at the Haripur Central Prison until Tuesday, from where he was shifted to the Peshawar Central Prison in a helicopter.

Due to terrorist threats, the administration had earlier deployed the police and army personnel in and around the prison.

According to a source, the superintendent of the prison sent a letter to the Peshawar district judge on Monday requesting him to depute a magistrate for administering the execution.
