SCI may hear Prof Bhullar’s case on 15 November

Published: November 15, 2011

New Delhi (November 15, 2011): The Supreme Court of India is expected to hear Professor Devender Singh Bhullar’s petition on 15 November, 2011 against execution of Death penalty.

Professor Devender Pal Singh Bhullar had been sentenced to death on sole basis of defected confessional statement extracted in police custody by torture.

He has already undergone 18 years of imprisonment and was kept at the edge of life and death by Government of India for more than eight years, as GOI took eight years to decide his constitutional review petition.

It is notable that Supreme Court of India’s bench awarding death punishment to Bhullar was divided on the point of his guilt as Presiding judge, Justice Shah acquitted him while two other judges convicted him and sentenced him to death.

Professor Bhullar’s counsel on previous hearing had argued that the death penalty should not be executed as there was a split verdict.
