Jammu: A group of PDP Legislators comprising Mohammad Khalil Bandh, Zahoor Ahmed Mir, Raja Manzoor Ahmad, Mohd. Abas Wani, Yawar Dilawar Mir, Advocate Mohd. Yosuf, Aijaz Ahmad Mir and Noor Mohd. Sheikh have issued the following statement.
“PDP has always maintained that late Afzal Guru’s hanging was travesty of justice and constitutional requirements/process was not followed in hanging him out of turn. The way he was picked up from serial no.28 and singled out has been condemned by PDP and it stands by the demand for return of his mortal remains, and the party promises to follow vigorously for the return of the mortal remains.
We believe that the resolution brought by Er. Rashid to seek clemency for late Afzal Guru was justified and should have been adopted by the House at that time.”
