The BHRC sends today, 21 August 2013, a public letter to express concern at the recent rejection on 14th August 2013 by the Supreme Court of India of the review petition by Professor Bhullar against his sentence of capital punishment. Reports suggest that his execution now is imminent and may be carried out this week. Following our open letter to the Indian Government of 5th June 2013, we continue to strongly urge the Indian Government to stay the execution and commute the sentence of capital punishment forthwith.
