Death Penalty for LeT Militant affirmed in the 2000 Red Fort Attack Case, Supreme Court dismisses the review petition

The Supreme Court on Thursday dismissed a review petition challenging the death penalty imposed on Lakshar-e-Toiba militant Mohammed Arif in the Red Fort Attack case in 2000, which resulted in the deaths of three people, including two army officers.

The division bench, comprising Chief Justice UU Lalit and Justice Bela M Trivedi, stated, "We have accepted the prayers that electronic records must be eschewed from consideration. However, having regard to the entirety of the matter, his guilt is proved. We affirm the view taken by this court and reject the review petition"

On December 22, 2000, intruders opened fire indiscriminately, killing three people, including two army jawans from the 7th Rajputana Rifles. Mohd. Arif, admittedly a Pakistani national, was arrested on December 25, 2000, in this case. He was convicted by the trial court on October 24, 2005, and awarded the death sentence on October 31, 2005. On August 10, 2011, the Supreme Court dismissed his appeal against the conviction, and his review petition was denied on August 28, 2011. However, the Supreme Court decided in 2016 to re-hear his review petition in light of the verdict that stated that review petitions filed in death penalty cases must be heard in open court. On April 28, 2014, the Supreme Court stayed Arif's execution in the case.
