The Centre Govt. gave this assurance to the Supreme Court after it expressed its anguish over the delay in framing its response to Delhi Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung’s recommendation commuting Bhullar’s death sentence. ¬†Appearing before the bench headed by Chief Justice P Sathasivam, Attorney General G E Vahanvati submitted that this case has to be allowed by the court and no argument is required in this matter. After the senior most law officer’s submission, the bench reserved its order for next week. In the case of Bhullar, it was contended that not only was there a delay in deciding his mercy petition but he was also mentally ill and undergoing treatment in a mental hospital.
