Will Afzal Guru, Bhullar be hanged?

New Delhi: Following Ajmal Amir Kasab’s execution, the lone survivor of 26/11 attack, two terrorists facing death row and currently lodged in Tihar jail are believed to be very apprehensive of their future.  According to Sunil Gupta, spokesperson of Tihar Jail, there was sense of uneasiness on Afzal’s face after hearing the news about the execution of Kasab.


Afzal Guru, who attacked Parliament, in 2001 was given death penalty by the Supreme Court in 2005. Later he filed a mercy petition, which has now been returned to home ministry for consideration.
Mercy petition of Khalistan Liberation Force (KLF), Bhullar, who was sentenced to death by a trial court on August 25, 2001 for plotting terror attacks on Punjab SSP Sumedh Singh Saini in 1991 and the then Youth Congress head in 1993, has been rejected by the President.


It is believed that Bhullar is under immense pressure and his mental condition is not stable. He is currently getting medical treatment at a Human Behaviour and Allied Sciences Institute Hospital in Delhi.


Many heard Bhullar shouting in the hospital, ‘Executioner is coming and he will hang me till death.’


The doctors looking after Bhullar have already apprised the Court and Tihar jail official that there were no signs of improvement in his condition.
