HARIPUR: Two death row convicts were hanged in the Central Jail Haripur on early Thursday morning. The dead bodies of the prisoners were handed over to their families after the execution.

According to details, death row convict Ali Raza was hanged for killing a man in 2004 while prisoner Farhad was executed for murdering a man in 1997.

Six-year moratorium on death penalty was lifted on December 17, 2014 for those convicted for terrorism a day after the deadly attack on Army Public School in Peshawar that left 150 persons including mostly children dead. There are more than 8,000 prisoners on death row in the country.
