The Supreme Court of India on 14 August 2013 rejected the review petition of 1993 Delhi blast accused, Devender Pal Singh Bhullar. Bhullar, a Khalistani terrorist and death row convict was sentenced to death by a trial court on August 25, 2001, for plotting terror attacks on Punjab SSP Sumedh Singh Saini in 1991 and the then Youth Congress head M S Bitta in 1993 that left nine people dead.
A bench headed by Justice G S Singhvi refused to review its 12 April 2013 verdict by which it had rejected his plea for commuting the death sentence to life imprisonment.
President Pranab Mukherjee had earlier rejected Bhullar's mercy plea.
