LAHORE: Imran Ali, who was awarded death penalty in the rape and murder case of seven-year-old Zainab, met his ultimate fate early Wednesday morning.
Ali was hanged to death at 5:30 am at Lahore’s Kot Lakhpat Central Jail.
He was executed in the presence of Judicial Magistrate Adil Sarwar, the deceased’s father, Muhammad Amin, and her uncle.
A medical team examined and declared the convict medically fit before he was hanged. Following the execution, his body was handed over to his legal heirs for burial.
The DPO Kasur said Imran’s body will not be taken to Kasur and buried at Lahore’s Nashtar Colony Kamahan graveyard owing to possible protests.
Speaking to the media, the deceased girl’s father Amin Ansari said he is satisfied as the murderer of her daughter has met his fate.
He said whoever will commit such felony will meet a similar fate, adding that such convicts be hanged publicly to ensure that such crimes don’t happen in future.
