LHC summons details of death row inmates

LAHORE: The Lahore High Court on Monday summoned details of local and foreign inmates on death row within 15 days from the federal and provincial governments.

A petition in the LHC filed by Advocate Azhar Siddique stated that no statics were present for the number of inmates on death row.

The petitioner maintained that death sentences of several terrorists were not being implemented despite their appeals being rejected. He requested the court to summon details of death row inmates and implement the sentences.
