The Delhi government on Tuesday cleared the file on Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru's mercy petition and sent it to the Lieutenant Governor.
Guru was awarded the death sentence by a Delhi court on December 18, 2002 after being convicted of conspiracy to attack Parliament on December 13, 2001 and waging war against India and murder.
The death sentence was upheld by Delhi high court on October 29, 2003 and his appeal was rejected by the Supreme Court two years later on August 4, 2005.
A sessions court also fixed the date of his hanging on October 20, 2006 in Tihar jail.
Following this, Guru filed a mercy petition with the President, who forwarded it to home ministry for its comments, and the home ministry sent it to the Delhi government's home department.
The Delhi government has been sitting on the file for nearly four years.
