New Delhi, Dec 13 (ANI): Activists of the Rashtrawadi Shivsena staged a demonstration here on Sunday demanding execution of parliament attack mastermind Afzal Guru.

Country is observing the eighth anniversary of the parliament attack on Sunday.

Five gunmen had stormed the heavily guarded Parliament complex in December 2001 and killed nine people before being shot dead by guards.

The death sentence of Mohammad Afzal Guru, accused of conspiracy in the attack, has been stayed, as his mercy petition is pending before the President.

The activists organised a fire ritual to pay homage to the martyrs and later took out a procession holding an effigy of Afzal Guru. They also raised slogans against the UPA Government for not punishing the guilty and also set the effigy on fire.

The protestors said the Union Government has failed to take action against the terrorists.

"Today, we have come here to pay homage to those martyrs and also to demand from the Government and from the Home Minister that Afzal Guru and Kasab who attacked Mumbai, made effort to destroy the unity and integrity of our country. They should not be treated like brothers," said Jai Bhagwan Goyal, chief of the Rashtrawadi Shivsena party.

"Through today's protest, we want to demand from the Government, from Sonia Gandhi, from Manmohan Singh and from P. Chidambaram that as soon as possible, these people should be hanged to death in public glare," he added. (ANI)
