Saulat Mirza (Status: Deceased) (5/9)

Known as a political hitman, you probably also remember him from every day’s 9 pm bulletin back in 2015. Although the face you might remember would be of a person with a white taqiyah cap and greying beard. Mirza was a political activist of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM), better known for his target killings than political activism.

In 1997, he was convicted for a triple murder of a bureaucrat and managing-director of KESC (now K-Electric) Shahid Hamid, along with his driver Ashraf Brohi, and his guard Khan Akbar. Anti-terrorism court awarded him death sentence in 1999, and all his clemency applications after that were rejected by the Sindh High Court and Supreme Court of Pakistan.

His execution was once delayed after he claimed in a video confession that the chief of former MQM had ordered him to carry out the killings. He was hanged on 11th May 2015 in Mach prison. The jail officials said that he was calm and composed at gallows. He is also said to have left a note, the contents of which are not known.
