With political parties in Punjab demanding clemency for death row convict Khalistan militant Devinder Pal Singh Bhullar, a 39-year-old Shiv Sena activist today offered his services to hang the Ultra.
“I am prepared to hang Bhullar free of cost,” said Tandon, who is also incharge of Punjab’s Shiv Sena affairs.
Targeting the political parties in Punjab over their stand on the issue, he said: “Both the SAD and the Congress in Punjab are siding with Bhullar keeping view the February Assembly polls in the state,” he alleged.
“It’s surprising that political leaders in Punjab want to save Bhullar as he is a Sikh,” he said.
Both Punjab Congress and the ruling Shiromani Akali Dal want Bhullar’s death sentence to be commuted to life in prison. Various Sikh bodies including the Dal Khalsa have petitioned the President raised the same demand.
President Pratibha Patil had on May 26 rejected the mercy petition of Bhullar, a member of Khalistan Liberation Force (KLF).
Bhullar was sentenced to death by a trial court on August 25, 2001 for plotting terror attacks on Punjab SSP Sumedh Singh Saini in 1991 and the then Youth Congress head M S Bitta in 1993.
