Return mortal remains: Sagar to GoI

Return mortal remains: Sagar to GoI

In a statement issued here, Party General Secretary Ali Muhammad Sagar said hanging Guru was a very unfortunate decision taken by the central government.

Reiterating the demand for return of the mortal remains of Muhammad Afzal Guru to his family, National Conference (NC) Monday asked the government of India that it shouldn’t waste much time and handover the mortal remains to his family. 

In a statement issued here, Party General Secretary Ali Muhammad Sagar said hanging Guru was a very unfortunate decision taken by the central government.

“Hanging Guru, at the first place was a grave mistake and unfortunate decision because it was a common notion all across the state the Guru wasn’t provided a fair trial and a fair legal support,” Sagar said adding all other formalities were also set aside in the case of Guru.

He said while PDP was in power, Afzal Guru was indicted, convicted as well as sentenced and his legal fight started and ended during the PDP tenure. He said PDP while in Government did absolutely nothing to ensure fair legal support and representation to Afzal Guru.
