Zafar Iqbal was a Pakistani who killed eleven people in two shootings in Arya Mohalla, Rawalpindi, and Sangori, a village in Gujar Khan, Pakistan, on January 10, 1994.

After a long feud with another family, who were apparently his relatives, he went to Arya Mohalla where he shot dead six of them. Later the same day he killed five more members of the family in Sangori. He was afterwards arrested, convicted of the murders, and sentenced to death.

A review petition filed by Iqbal against his death penalty was dismissed by the Supreme Court of Pakistan in 2008, and his mercy petition was rejected by the president. As a consequence he was scheduled to be hanged on April 25, 2016, but after filing an application in court against his execution, because his family had supposedly reached a compromise with the victim family, it was postponed until May 10 the same year.[1][2][3][4]
