Islamabad: No execution of death row convict will be carried out in Pakistan`s Punjab provbince Monday, Geo News reported citing the country`s interior ministry sources.
The mercy pleas of three death row inmates were sent to President Mamnoon Hussain. Two of the death row inmates were convicted for attacking military installations while the third was held guilty of carrying out an attack on a civilian target, sources added.
These convicts will be sent to the gallows after the president rejects their appeals, according to the ministry sources.
Six executions have been carried out in Punjab since the government last week decided the ban on the death penalty would not apply for convicted terrorists.
