Seventeen (17) individuals were sent for execution on Tuesday, 21st April, across Pakistan. The mass execution was marked as the highest number of executions in the country since the moratorium on death sentences was lifted.

It was reported that Central Jail Gujranwala, convicts Inayatullah, Zafar Iqbal and Mohammed Latif were hanged for his conviction of killing seven people of the same family in Wazirabad.

In Faisalabad, Mohammed Hussain and Nizamuddin were also executed for the killing three people in 1998 while Mohommed Azam who was convicted of murdering seven people of a family in 2004, was also executed. The trend followed as convicts Luqman and Saleem in Sialkot Jail, were sent to the gallows for the gang-rape of a minor in Qila Kalarwala in 1999.
