Hi All,
           News Item FYI
"The Supreme Court has advised the government to expeditiously dispose of mercy pleas of prisoners sentenced to death and not to use human beings "as pawns in furthering some larger political or government policy". As many as death row prisoners, including Parliament attack convict Mohammed Afzal Guru, are awaiting for a decision on their mercy pleas. The court cautioned the government that any delay in decision would amount to violation of condemned prisoners' right to life with dignity."
