I am of the opinion that in such cases, the public have the right to know the reasons as to why it took 8 years to take a decision in such cases. Such cases should be explained so that there is transparency on the reasons for the decisions. This is more pertinent because we are the largest democracy in the world.

In my view the public should have such a right to know the reason for such an extraordinary delay.Death sentence is only awarded in the rarest of rare cases and as susch should be carried out as soon as possible.The Indian constitution should be amended so that the President gets a limited time , say not more than a year to decide on the mercy petition.Rather I would suggest that the clause of mercy petition should be absolutely done away with.Since the criminal who has been awarded the death penalty has not shown any mercy while committing a grave crime , he has no right to plead for mercy.

Procrastinations in executing the DEATH SENTENCES is also an indirect crime.
It is sad in not providing such sentences in Economic Offences too.
Our CONSTITUTION & JUDICIARY should hardly have the right to play with the human lives & money .
