Former SC judge says Guru was hanged wrongly

Kolkata—Former Supreme Court judge Ashok Ganguly Monday raised doubts over the handling of the 2013 execution of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru, saying human rights prevail as long as the noose is not tightened around the neck.
“I am saying as a (former) judge the way the execution took place – his clemency petition was rejected on February 3 and the execution took place on February 9.This is wrong. He had the right to challenge it.
Family members have the right to be informed about it. The human right is there as long as the noose is not tightened around the neck,” he said.—KR
