Lahore, Sept 20 (PTI) Pakistan is set to execute a 43-year-old paraplegic man convicted of murder, drawing condemnation from a prominent rights group. Abdul Basit, who was convicted of murder in 2009, will be hanged on Tuesday. Basit became paralysed from the waist down after contracting tubercular meningitis in prison. The Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP) has called upon the President to stay the hanging and grant him reprieve. “Human rights activists throughout Pakistan and beyond have been shocked to learn of the orders for the execution of convict Abdul Basit (a paraplegic man)on September 22, despite the fact that the unfortunate man is paralysed from his waist below,” the commission said in a statement. “We are also shocked that the courts summarily dismissed the pleas for taking into consideration the provisions of international human rights instruments for special treatment of physically challenged people.” It further says Basits mercy petition is still pending in the presidency. “In these circumstances the execution of Abdul Basit will offend against all norms of civilised justice, raise awkward questions about the Pakistan justice systems insensitivity to humanitarian imperatives, and indict the Pakistan state and society as brutal entities,” it said. Last month, Pakistan executed Shafqat Hussain convicted of killing a seven-year-old boy when he himself was aged 14, drawing international criticism. Since Pakistan lifted a moratorium on executions in December 2014 in the wake of attack on an Army Public School in Peshawar that left 150 people killed mostly children, the Amnesty International has recorded over 200 executions.

After narrowly missing out on a win in the opening Test at the Eden Gardens, a confident India will be aiming to extend their dominance over Sri Lanka when the two sides face off in the second Test here from Friday.The hosts came agonisingly close to going 1-0 up in the three-match rubber but bad light ruined their chances to do so on the final day of the rain-marred first Test in Kolkata.Inspired by the performance of the fast bowlers in the first Test and keeping in mind the upcoming tour of South Africa early next year, the hosts are once again set to test the Sri Lankans on a green track at the Vidarbha Cricket Association (VCA) Stadium in Jamtha.The Indian pace trio of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umesh Yadav and Mohammed Shami shared all the 17 Sri Lankan wickets which fell during the first Test. But with Bhuvneshwar set to tie the knot, he was released from the squad for the remainder of the series.#TeamIndia is here at Nagpur for a training session ahead of the 2nd Test against Sri Lanka #INDvSL pic.twitter.com/A7vjrVf9Qv- BCCI (@BCCI) November 23, 2017Pacer Ishant Sharma, a veteran of 77 Tests, looks set to join the pace battery for the series.The other change in the Indian XI will be at the top of the order with opener Murali Vijay joining Lokesh Rahul after Shikhar Dhawan asked for a break due to personal reasons.Going into the second game, India will be brimming with confidence with the form of skipper Virat Kohli, whose fighting 50th international hundred in trying conditions at the Eden almost sealed the deal in the hosts’ favour.advertisementBatsman @mvj888 prepping up in the nets session ahead of the 2nd Test at Nagpur #INDvSL pic.twitter.com/uOPmYF7HLf- BCCI (@BCCI) November 22, 2017Besides Kohli, the middle order comprising Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane and stumper Wriddhiman Saha also looked in good stead during the first match.But it will be interesting to see if India persist with two spinners — especially Ravindra Jadeja, who made very little contribution with the ball and had a lukewarm match as a batsman.Knowing Kohli’s fondness for wrist spinners, chinaman Kuldeep Yadav could come in as a replacement while rookie Vijay Shankar could also be handed his maiden Test cap.With Hardik Pandya missing from the set-up, Shankar has a chance of fitting into the playing XI, bringing the required stability that comes with a No.6 batsman.On the other hand, the tourists will need to revisit their strategy after conceding the advantage to the hosts, particularly after dominating for the better part of the first four days.While they have limited options to choose from in the batting department, it would be interesting to see if the islanders persist with pacer Lahiru Gamage, who leaked 156 runs in two innings in seamer-friendly conditions.In case, they continue to go with a three-pronged pace attack, left-arm seamer Vishwa Fernando could be an option to replace Gamage.However, chinaman Lakshan Sandakhan could provide that X-factor if the tourists plan for an added option in the slow bowling department along side veteran Rangana Herath.Vijay Shankar has been consistent and has earned his spot in the squad – Virat Kohli on India’s latest addition in the squad #INDvSL pic.twitter.com/fqvjfVVFkP- BCCI (@BCCI) November 23, 2017Squads:India: Virat Kohli (Captain), Lokesh Rahul, Murali Vijay, Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane, Wriddhiman Saha (WK), Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami, Umesh, Yadav, Ishant Sharma, Vijay Shankar, Kuldeep Yadav and Rohit Sharma.Sri Lanka: Dinesh Chandimal (Captain), Angelo Mathews, Dimuth Karunaratne, Niroshan Dickwella (WK), Dhananjaya de Silva, Suranga Lakmal, Dasun Shanaka, Viswa Fernando, Lahiru Gamage, Lakshan Sandakan, Sadeera Samarawickrama, Dilruwan Perera and Roshen Silva.
