Veerappan saga: Mercy plea of bandit's associates rejected - Oneindia News
I bet nothing to do with UPA here.
Pranab Mukherjee just acting within his powers and completing pending work inherited from previous presidents.
Execution orders come from Home Ministry, not President. Timings of last 2 executions match parliament session, that itself rejects the possibility of him being apolitical.
may be to counter weight Afsal gur's hanging.
But no arundathi roy or 'The hindu' paper will support or put up article for them
Well UPA leadership would be tested when killers of Rajvi Gandhi would be hanged or the one would killed ex-CM of punjab (beloging to conress)
And here they start !
Amnesty demands halt on execution of Veerapan associates
New Delhi: Amnesty International on Thursday demanded a halt on the execution of four associates of slain sandalwood smuggler Veerapan.
â€œIndia must immediately halt the impending executions of four prisoners whose mercy petitions were rejected by President Pranab Mukherjee,â€ Amnesty International said in a statement.
The four prisoners â€” Gnanprakasham, Simon, Meesekar Madaiah and Bilavendran â€” were sentenced to death in a 1993 landmine blast case.
The Presidentâ€™s move came just days after the hanging of Afzal Guru -â€“ the second execution in India in less than three months.
â€œThis government has executed more people since November 2012 than in the previous ten years. To continue such a regressive trend would be truly shameful,â€ said G Ananthapadmanabhan, chief executive of Amnesty International India.
â€œGiven the political climate and the two other recent executions, there is a real concern that these four men will be put to death soon. The Indian government must ensure that this does not happen.â€
The four prisoners were originally sentenced to life imprisonment by a special court in Karnataka set up under the Terrorist and Disruptive Activities Prevention Act (TADA), but their sentences were converted to death penalty by the Supreme Court in 2004. They had filed mercy petitions in 2004.
Amnesty International opposes the death penalty as a violation of the right to life as proclaimed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and as the ultimate cruel, inhuman or degrading punishment.
The organisation opposes capital punishment in all cases without exception, regardless of the nature or circumstances of the crime; guilt, innocence or other characteristics of the individual; or the method used by the state to carry out the execution.
Court to decide execution date of four Veerapan associates on Monday
As if life imprisonment is better than hanging. Either move to less # of sentence years(say <10) or there is not much difference between killing a guy everyday for 20+ years or actually hanging him.

These two cases will remain in limbo like now and the accused will die a natural death inside the prisons.
