President Murmu rejects mercy plea of Pakistani terrorist Mohammed Arif convicted in Red Fort attack case

President Droupadi Murmu has rejected the mercy petition of Pakistani terrorist Mohammed Arif alias Ashfaq convicted in the nearly 24-year-old Red Fort attack case, an official said on Wednesday (June 12). This was the second mercy plea rejected by the President after assuming office on July 25, 2022.

On November 3, 2022, the Supreme Court had dismissed Arif’s review petition and upheld the death penalty awarded to him in the case. However, a death row convict can still knock on the doors of the top court seeking commutation of his sentence on the ground of prolonged delay under Article 32 of the Constitution, feel experts.
