NEW DELHI—The Indian Supreme Court today rejected the review petition seeking stay on execution of Professor Davinder Pal Singh Bhullar.

Death row convict Bhullar’s appeal against death penalty was dismissed by Supreme Court on 26 March 2002. Later his review petition was also dismissed on 17 December 2002.

Professor Bhullar then moved a curative petition which too had been rejected by the Supreme Court on 12 March 2003. He later filed a mercy petition before President on 14 January 2003 and after a wait of over 8 years his plea was dismissed on 25 May last year.

On 02 April, the Supreme Court dismissed Bhullar’s mercy petition to commute his death sentence to life imprisonment.

President Pranab Mukherjee earlier rejected Bhullar’s mercy plea. Press Council of India chairperson Justice Markandey Katju had written to President Pranab Mukherjee seeking pardon for Davinder Pal Singh Bhullar. Katju had said that Bhullar had been having some chronic psychiatric problem and sought pardon for him.

The Shiromani Akali Dal and the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee had also appealed to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh seeking a commutation of death sentence of Bhullar to life imprisonment. Punjab CM Parkash Badal had said that the case deserved a review because of Bhullar’s deteriorating mental health and for communal harmony in Punjab and the rest of the country.


  1. UPA’s Hangmen
    It’s obvious why Chairperson UPA/the Congress Party deliberately chose as
    • Presidential nominee a man with a violent, ruthless past who had been Sanjay Gandhi’s right-hand man during the Reign of Terror from 1975 to ’77 (‘The Emergency’ years)
    • Minister Home Affairs a man who had worked closely with their Presidential nominee in situations of State violence; a man who himself is from the communally-trained, ruthless and lawless IPS, notorious for committing atrocities against vulnerable communities like the Sik hs, a man she recently upgraded to membership of the Congress party’s highest decision-making body, the CWC
    • Minister External Affairs a man who, like the rest of his community, apparently harboured a deep-seated desire for revenge against Sikhs (and Hindus) for the ‘sins’ they committed in 1947 (ref. his book ‘At Home in India’)

    It’s also obvious why UPA chairperson’s presidential nominee, on becoming sovereign, ignored a certain judge’s argument that Bhullar was NOT guilty: it was the same judge who had accused the present President of India of some rather heinous crimes he himself committed from 1975 to 77, was it not (ref. Shah Commission Report Lost and Regained by Era Sezhian)? The re-constitution of a judicial panel was simply an eye-wash.

    Not a single one of those in the State machinery who created the circumstances for Bhul lar’s attack, funded and armed him has even been investigated, let alone hanged. The Lt Governor of Delhi who opposed Bhullar’s hanging on grounds of mental and physical ill health was replaced.

    Genocide of Sikhs has been a long and hidden agenda of many of India’s so-called freedom-fighters who conspired with foreign think tanks to shrink India’s population, and to ‘cleanse’ it. Bhullar is one more lamb in a long line being taken to the slaughter-house to provoke many more Sikhs to retaliate … and therefore get slaughtered (a vicious cycle conceived of by a bunch of vicious Sickos who call themselves ‘secular’ but believe only THEY have the right to live).

    In view of the above, I appeal to the Sikh community not to fall into the State’s trap by reacting in the manner expected (and wanted by the State) but instead to think with a cool head. Life is precious. One is worth far more to one’s family and to the community alive, rather than dead.

    • H.H.Pranab Mukherji, the President had been a very pragmatic Politician and lot was expected from him.He could have taken the stand on commuting the death sentence.Supreme court could have taken a stand on grounds of health.Imagine how the world will react if a mental health prisoner is taken to the gallows.Wow! a country of Vikramditya’s justice system can degenerate to this extent no one could imagine.
