Sialkot Brothers

A court in Gujranwala has issued death warrants for seven individuals convicted of killing brothers Mughees and Muneeb in Sialkot in 2010, Express News reported.

The culprits are to be executed on April 8.

On September 20, 2011, Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) Gujranwala sentenced seven individuals to death, six to life in prison and all policemen involved in the incident to three year imprisonment.

On August 15, 2010, a mob gathered in broad daylight in Buttran Wali, Sialkot, and lynched Mughees and Muneeb in full view of police officers, who made no attempts to stop the murder.

The bodies of the two brothers were dragged through the streets by the mob, who labelled them robbers. The bodies were then hanged against a water tank. The villagers were about to set the bodies on fire when family members of brothers reached the spot and took them home. Later, no police records were found of Mughees and Muneeb, who were both students.
