In a judgement that will lay precedence for others, the Supreme Court on Friday rejected the mercy petition filed by Punjab militant Devender Pal Singh Bhullar, who was convicted of killing nine people with a car bomb in Delhi in 1993.
Strongly defending the provision
of capital punishment, senior advocate K T S Tulsi on Monday
termed the Government`s attitude in dealing with mercy
petitions as "reprehensible" and sought their early disposal.
