Two terrorists including a former soldier of the Army’s Medical Corps, Dr Usman who was the mastermind behind the attack on Sri Lankan cricket team in 2009 were hanged in Pakistan after the government ended a moratorium on the death penalty earlier this week.

The government ended the six-year ban on capital punishment for terror-related cases following a brutal terror attack on a school in Peshawar on Tuesday that killed 149 people, mostly children.

Aqil, who uses the name Doctor Usman, was convicted for an attack on the army headquarters in Rawalpindi in 2009 and was arrested after being injured.
