Andhrawishesh view

It is not about supporting a terrorist, it is all about, how a person was treated very specially and allotted all the ultimate punishments, with many unanswered questions, left behind. All the above questions, raise new doubts on Indian law system. However, realizing now will have nothing to do, as the judgment was already implemented.
