Afzal calm in his last moments

Meanwhile, before his execution on Wednesday morning, Afazal walked to the gallows in a peaceful and composed frame of mind.
"He was very peaceful and calm during the final moments. He looked very composed," a top Tihar Jail official said.
The official said Guru's family was informed about the execution.
Guru spent nearly eight years on death row in the Tihar prison. He was convicted in the audacious attack on Parliament in 2001.
The mercy plea of 43-year-old Guru, who was sentenced to death in 2002 by a special court and later upheld by the Supreme Court in 2004, was rejected by President Pranab Mukherjee a few days back, Rashtrapati Bhavan spokesperson Venu Rajamony said.
