The Peshawar High Court has quashed the sentences of 196 people on appeals filed by military courts against sentences on various charges. A record of more than 100 cases has been sought.

The court on Tuesday heard more than 300 petitions that were handed down by a military court. A bench comprising Chief Justice Peshawar High Court Justice Waqar Ahmed Seth and Justice Naeem Anwar heard the case.

Advocate Shabbir Gigiani, appearing for the petitioners, told the BBC that the court had ruled on the petitions whose record had been submitted by the government while on the petitions whose record had not yet been produced. His hearing will be held in the coming days.
