No need for House resolution on Bhullar: Capt
Chandigarh: Punjab Congress chief Amarinder
Singh on Monday said there was no need to bring a resolution in
the state assembly seeking clemency for Khalistan militant
Devender Pal Singh Bhullar.
There was no need to bring a resolution in the Assembly
as the matter was before the Supreme Court, he said.
"Let the Supreme Court decides the Bhullar issue and
there is no need to fight on it in the Assembly," the former
Chief Minister said.
He, however, said Bhullar must get benefit of doubt as
aroung 100 witnesses had turned hostile and his conviction was
based on police statement.
The mercy plea of Bhullar, who is death row, had been
rejected by the President.
Bhullar was convicted for attacking former Youth Congress
chief M S Bitta in Delhi in 1993.
