For the murder of Osama Satti, Muhammad Mustafa and Iftikhar Ahmed, two Police officers, were given the death penalty.
The trial court’s decision to punish two Police officers who killed Osama Satti with the death penalty has been contested, according to a Monday Express-News report.
The appeal will be heard today by a two-judge panel of the Islamabad High Court (IHC) comprised of Justices Mohsin Akhtar Kayani and Tariq Mehmood Jahangiri. Police officers Iftikhar Ahmed and Muhammad Mustafa’s death sentences have been challenged in the petition.
The petition demanded the release of the jailed Police officers and claimed that the trial court’s ruling was illegal and should be declared void.

Three months later, the terrorism-related provisions in the murder case had been removed by an anti-terrorism court (ATC) in Islamabad, and the case had been forwarded to a district and sessions court.
After the anti-terrorism court indicted five ATC cops charged with the student’s murder in the alleged encounter that sparked outrage on social media, the court reserved its decision last month.
