The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Saturday said that hanging of Afzal Guru was both wrong and injustice and that it was done in hurry from centre and state.
Taking to their official Twitter handle the PDP also said that family of Guru should have been given a last meeting and his body should have been returned. “Hanging of Guru was both wrong & injustice. It was done in a hurry from both centre and state for petty political gains. And at last, family should have been given a last meeting & body returned. Political hypocrisy! From Congress to NC, justice was never served!” PDP wrote.
Six years ago on this day Guru was hanged and buried in Delhi’s Tihar Jail after he was convicted of hatching a conspiracy of an attack on Indian parliament.
Meanwhile a complete shutdown is being observed in the Kashmir valley to remember the hanging.
