Mohammed Afzal Guru, a Kashmiri fruit seller who helped Jaish-e-Mohammad terrorists carry out the dastardly attack on Parliament in 2001, was today hanged and buried in Tihar Jail in a secret early morning operation.

The 43-year-old resident of Sopore in North Kashmir was said to have been calm and composed when he was taken to gallows and hanged at 8 AM in the high-security prison number 3 of Tihar jail, six days after his mercy plea was rejected by President Pranab Mukherjee.
