** Latest Update - Supreme Court Tells Centre...."you Inform Us, Or Else We Will Make Our Own Decision" **

Recommended Posts

Yesterday, SOPW had been informed by the family of Professor Bhullar, that the Supreme Court met to hear the petition filed by Navneet Kaur, on behalf of her husband Professor Devinderpal Singh Bhullar. She has appealed for his death sentence to be commuted to life imprisonment on the grounds of his mental health and because of the inordinate delay by the Government in deciding his mercy petition.

In an earlier hearing, the Centre had been granted a further two weeks to decide upon the petition but today, the Court was told that it was "still under consideration". The bench, headed by Chief Justice Sathasivam, adjourned the case and told Attorney General Vahanvati, "if you inform us (about the decision taken) it is well and good or we will decide the case”.

The Chief Justice also revealed that there have been recent cases where the Government has not taken the advice of its law officers seriously and the Centre has rejected their letters outright.

The Court will meet again around 26 March when the Centre will be given a further opportunity to submit their decision in this case.
