Davinder Singh Bhullar

Mr Sutcliffe: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will raise with the Government of India the case of Professor Davinder Singh Bhullar. [62851]

Mr Jeremy Browne: I wrote to the Indian High Commissioner on 20 June, reiterating the UK Government’s strong opposition to the death penalty and urging the Government of India to reconsider Mr Bhullar’s sentence. I have also raised our concerns with Indian Foreign Secretary Rao on 28 June. We continue to urge the Government of India to establish a formal moratorium as a first step towards the abolition of the death penalty in India.
