Internet desk. Shabnam’s hanging of the Bawankhedi murder case in Amroha has been postponed once again. The district court had sought details of the murderer Shabnam from the prosecution but a mercy petition was filed by his advocate to the governor. Due to the filing of mercy petition again, the date of hanging could not be fixed.
Shabnam’s hanging was heard in the district judge’s court on Tuesday. It was already believed that Shabnam’s report would be submitted to the district judge’s court and if no petition was found pending in this report, the date of Shabnam’s execution could be fixed. A few days ago, Shabnam’s lawyer again submitted an application to the District Jail Rampur administration, seeking a mercy petition from the Governor. This was mentioned in the hearing today. Due to this, the date of hanging could not be fixed.
It is worth mentioning that on the night of 14/15 April 2008, Shabnam along with her lover Salim had killed 7 people of her own family with an ax. In this case, both the lower court and the Supreme Court upheld the death sentence of both.
Last week, Shabnam met her 12-year-old son and wept bitterly, demanding a CBI inquiry, claiming himself innocent. Usmani Saifi, who was raising Shabnam’s son, said that when he asked Shabnam in Rampur jail if he had committed the crime, he refused and asked for a CBI inquiry.
