Prez rejects a mercy plea of a KLF member involved in a bomb blast

The president in a process to clear the long list of mercy plea petitions pending before her office has rejected a mercy petition of a member of the Khalistan Liberation Force who was convicted in a bomb blast in New Delhi killing the then Youth Congress leader M.S.Bitta and 12 others. This decision comes after many Sikh activists and Human Rights groups have campaigned for the plea to be accepted. The Supreme Court in a recent case has expressed its intention to probe into the reason for the delay of the mercy petitions specially this one. This decision of the president makes the Parliamentary attacks convict Afsal Guru’s case more interesting as similar support to accept his mercy petition have been going on for years but his plea is way down the order in the list.
