Nitish Kumar welcomes Afzal Guru`s execution

A mastermind of the terror attack on Parliament in 2001, Afzal Guru was hanged today at the high-security Tihar jail in Delhi.



Patna: Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Saturday welcomed the hanging of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru and said the Jaish-e-Mohammad militant`s execution had to happen one day but was delayed.

"In the end, justice has prevailed and Afzal Guru has been hanged," Kumar told reporters here.

Guru`s crime was established long ago but the matter remained pending for years, he said, adding that there is a perception among the countrymen that the militant should have been executed much earlier.
