Imran Ali, who raped and murdered of at least eight minor girls including Zainab Ansari in Kasur, was hanged in Lahore’s Kot Lakhpat Jail early Wednesday morning.
The rapist and serial killer was executed at around 5:30 am in the presence of both Magistrate Adil Sarwar and the deceased’s father, Muhammad Amin, both of whom arrived early morning at the Kot Lakhpat Jail.
Convicted Imran was awarded a death sentence on 21 counts after he was convicted of the rape and murder of at least eight minor girls, including Zainab.
The gallows was separated from the neck of the convict on the confirmation of death by the jail doctors. Later, the dead body of Imran Ali was handed over to his heirs after completing formal legal proceeding.
On Tuesday, jail authorities arranged the convict’s last meeting with his family, which lasted for some 45 minutes.
On the occasion, while speaking to the journalists, Muhammad Amin – the father of Zainab – said that such kind of criminals should be hanged publicly for giving a lesson to all such evil minds. He said that he is satisfied as the murderer of her daughter has met his fate.
An Anti-Terrorism Court Judge, Sajjad Ahmad on Friday had issued black warrants for Imran Ali.
