Military court trial for jailbreaking

The News International reports:
The Supreme Court (SC) on Tuesday suspended death sentence of a person who was convicted by the military court for breaking Bannu Jail. 
A three-member bench of the apex court headed by Chief Justice Anwar Zaheer Jamali heard the appeal of one Muhammad Arabi, who was awarded death sentence by the military court for breaking Bannu Jail. 
Counsel for the appellant submitted before the court that the military court without hearing his client had awarded the death sentence. The court while suspending the sentence issued notice to the respondents and adjourned the hearing for indefinite period. 
The Chief Justice directed the court office to club all the appeals of the convicts, who were awarded sentence by military courts.
