New Delhi, Feb 25: Former Union minister P Chidambaram has said there were “grave doubts” about the involvement of Afzal Guru in the 2001 Parliament attack and that the case was “perhaps not correctly decided”. Chidambaram was Union home minister when Guru’s mercy plea was rejected by the previous UPA government in 2011. Guru was hanged two years later. “There were grave doubts about his involvement (in the conspiracy behind the attack on Parliament) and even if he was involved, there were grave doubts about the extent of his involvement. He could have been imprisoned for life without parole for (the) rest of his tural life,” Chidambaram said.
