Shri Ram Sena hails hanging Parliament attack plotter Afzal Guru
Rajiv Mahajan, State president Shri Ram Sena, on Saturday, hailing the decision to hang parliament attack convict Afzal Guru said it was important to follow law and order. 'The law should be followed and respected by one and all. Whatever has been done, it has been done according to the law - whoever the accused may be - you, me or someone else,' Mahajan said.

Mahajan added, “The country investigated the matter completely, and only then they have acted as per law.”

Guru was hanged at Delhi’s Tihar Jail at 8 am Saturday after President Pranab Mukherjee rejected his mercy plea. He was convicted of conspiracy in the December 2001 attack on Parliament and was sentenced to death by the Supreme Court in 2005.

On 13th December 2001, five heavily armed gunmen stormed the Parliament complex and opened indiscriminate fire, killing nine persons. They included five Delhi Police personnel, a woman Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) official, two Parliament watch and ward staff and a gardener.

A journalist, who was injured, died later. All five terrorists were shot dead.
