New Delhi/Mumbai, March 27: After actor Sanjay Dutt, Press Council of India chairman Markandey Katju Wednesday sought a pardon for Zaibunissa Kazi, another convict in the 1993 Mumbai blasts case.
The former apex court judge said that he would write to President Pranab Mukherjee and Maharashtra Governor K. Sankaranarayanan to pardon Zaibunissa Kazi, 70, on humanitarian grounds.
"Zaibunissa Kazi also deserves a pardon. I was earlier considering her case and after going through her judgement file, I am of the firm opinion that she also deserves a pardon," Katju said in his blog.
"I have decided to appeal to the president of India as well as the governor of Maharashtra to pardon Zaibunnisa and Sanjay Dutt," he said.
