Parliament attack: Shoukat Guru moves SC

The Supreme Court on Monday issued a notice to the Delhi government on a fresh petition filed by Shoukat Hussain Guru against his conviction in the Parliament attack case.

A bench of Justices P P Naolekar and R V Raveendran issued notice after senior counsel Shanti Bhushan argued that the conviction was illegal and unconstitutional.

Bhushan claimed that Shoukat was convicted under Section 123 of the Indian Penal Code (concealing facts), an offence for which he was never charged.

The apex court had earlier heard Shoukat's review and curative petitions.

Guru has been sentenced to 10 years imprisonment in the 2001 Parliament attack case.
