Parliament Attack Case Afzal Guru Hanged Buried in Tihar Jail

Parliament Attack Case Afzal Guru Hanged Buried in Tihar Jail

In Year 2001 –
Indian Parliament was attack by terrorist.

The attack was conducted jointly by the Lashkar-e-Toiba (LET) and the Jaish-e-Mohammad (JEM).

Seven members of the security forces, including a female constable, were killed, as were the five still incompletely identified men who carried out the attack.

Mohammad Afzal Guru was a terrorist found guilty of conspiracy in the December 2001 attack on the Indian Parliament, who was sentenced to death by Special POTA Court in 2002.

He was born in Aabgah village near Sopore town in Baramulla district of Jammu and Kashmir.

Delhi High Court had confirmed the judgment in 2003 and Supreme Court of India rejected his appeal in 2005

The sentence was scheduled to be carried out on 20 October 2006, but Afzal was given a stay of execution and remained on death row.

On 3 February 2013, his mercy petition was rejected by the President of India Pranab Mukherjee.

He was hanged at Delhi's Tihar Jail around 08:00 A.M. on February 9, 2013 and
was buried near jail number three
He is the  second person to be hanged in India in nearly a decade.

But justice delayed is Justice denied.

Still question remains why he was not given death punishment on time?

Good news that at last AFzal Guru is hanged to death...I was not aware that only two people were hanged in last decade..No idea how many criminals are in the row to be hanged to death...Social controls are breaking, brutal crimes are rising, this need severe punishment orders and executions.

Thanks for posting time line chronology of Afzal guru case.
