Mohammed Afzal Guru, convicted of involvement in the audacious attack on Parliament in 2001, was on Saturday hanged and buried in Delhis Tihar Jail, six days after a mercy plea was rejected by the President. On the death row for over 10 years after conviction for his role in aiding and abetting the attack, a special court had sentenced Guru to death in December 2002, which was upheld by the Supreme Court on August 4, 2005.
