Chandigarh: A day after Anna Hazare`s remark that Congress leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi should be hanged if found guilty in connection with a controversial CD, Union Law Minister Salman Khurshid on Saturday said the death sentence should be awarded in "rarest of rare" cases.

"I respect Anna. I am a Law minister...As per my understanding a person is hanged in rarest of rare cases, especially relating to murder.

"If someone has other knowledge on law, I am prepared to learn from him. I will try to understand more about law," Khurshid said taking a dig at social crusader Hazare.

"Singhvi should be hanged if found guilty," Hazare had said yesterday at Beed in Maharashtra while touring the state for a stronger Lokayukta Act.

On the Presidential election, Khurshid said the country would get a "good President".
