ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Convicted murderer and former member of the MQM Saulat Mirza’s execution is set to be delayed for another time.

As per reports, the prime minister is expected to recommend the delay to the president who will then approve the decision.

Earlier on Wednesday,  Saulat Mirza filed a constitutional petition in the Sindh High Court (SHC) claiming that his family has been receiving death threats.

Mirza, who is presently languishing in Balochistan’s Machh jail, petitioned through his counsel, saying that his family has been receiving death threats in phone calls from South Africa.

Saulat Mirza was scheduled to be executed on 19 March but the death row inmate in a video made startling revelations regarding the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) and appealed for a delay in his execution.

He received a stay in his execution for 72 hours by the president which was later extended till April 30.
