Four TTP militants convicted by military courts hanged: ISPR: Four terrorists belonging to the banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) convicted of “heinous” terror related offences by military courts were executed on Wednesday.

According to the statement issued by ISPR, the four militants hanged were identified as Qaiser Khan, Muhammad Umar, Qari Zubair and Aziz Khan.
The terrorists admitted their offences before the magistrate and the trial court, following which they were awarded death sentences.
Qaiser Khan, an active member of TTP, was involved in killing an innocent civilian and destruction of communication infrastructure. He admitted his offences before the magistrate and the trial court, following which he was awarded death sentence.
Muhammad Umar was sentenced to death for his involvement in attacks on law enforcement agencies and armed forces, killing and injuring several soldiers.
