Muhammad Mustafa And Iftikhar Ahmed Sentence To Death For Osama Satti Murder Case

For the murder of Osama Satti, Muhammad Mustafa and Iftikhar Ahmed, two Police officers, were given the death penalty.

The recent decision of a trial court to impose the death penalty on two police officers who killed Osama Satti has been challenged, according to an Express-News report published on Monday.

The appeal will be heard by a two-judge panel of the Islamabad High Court (IHC) today, consisting of Justices Mohsin Akhtar Kayani and Tariq Mehmood Jahangiri.

The death sentences of Iftikhar Ahmed and Muhammad Mustafa, the two police officers in question, have been contested in the petition, which demands their release and alleges that the lower court’s ruling was illegal and should be invalidated.

Osama Satti Murder Case: What Happened?

On January 2, 2021, around 2:00 AM, Osama was on his way back after picking up his friend from Sector H-11 when he was stopped by Police officers in Sector G-10 on the Srinagar Highway. The officers opened fire on him from all sides, leading to his death.

Three months after the incident, the terrorism-related provisions were removed from the murder case by an anti-terrorism court (ATC) in Islamabad. The case was then forwarded to a district and sessions court.

Following the indictment of five ATC cops charged with the student’s murder in the alleged encounter that caused outrage on social media, the court reserved its decision last month. While ATC Judge Shah Rukh Arjumand received petitions to repeal anti-terrorism laws, the court denied the request for bail by accused ATS officer Mudassar.

Osama Satti Post Mortem Results

After hearing about a robbery in Islamabad, Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS) personnel claimed that Osama Satti refused to stop his car at a checkpoint. Reports suggest that the student was shot 17 times after ignoring Police orders to pull over.

Initially, the Police labeled the incident as a robbery case. However, five officers were later arrested, and a First Information Report (FIR) was registered against them under anti-terrorism and murder laws.

On Monday, a court inquiry into the student’s murder recommended holding members of the Anti-Terrorism Squad accountable under the Terrorism Act of 1997.
