ATC Sentences Four To Death in Lahore’s Johar Town Blast Case

LAHORE: An Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) on Wednesday sentenced four suspects to death on nine counts each in Lahore’s Johar Town blast case.

ATC Judge Arshad Hussain Bhutta announced the verdict which was reserved earlier on completion of arguments by parties.

The four accused Peter Paul, Eid Gul Khan, Zia Ullah and Sajjad were awarded death sentences while the fifth accused, Ayesha Gul, was awarded the five-year jail term and the fine.

In June 2021, the powerful blast in Lahore’s Johar Town had killed three people and left 24 others injured. Six-year-old Abdul Haq, his father Abdul Malik, and a passer-by died in the explosion.
