The Bar Human Rights Committee of England and Wales (BHRC) re-publishes today, 5th June, an Open Letter addressed to the President of India, Mr Pranab Mukherjee, the Prime Minister of India, Dr Manmohan Singh, the Indian Home Minister, Mr Sushilkumar Shinde, and the President of the Indian National Congress party, Mrs Sonia Gandhi, expressing concern at the recent rejection by the Indian Government of the application for mercy plea by Professor Devinder Pal Singh Bhullar. 

The BHRC urges the Government to stay the execution of Professor Bhullar and commute the sentence of capital punishment.
