china court

LANDIKOTAL, May 2: A native of Khyber Agency was sentenced to death in a Chinese prison in a smuggling case earlier this week.

Dunia Gul, resident of Khugakhel area in Landikotal tehsil, had been arrested in a smuggling case seven years ago.

The Chinese authorities executed him through a poisonous injection. The body was brought back to his native area and buried yesterday.

Dunia Gul was expected to be punished last month, but his punishment had been delayed due to visit of Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to China.
