ratio laid down in Devender Pal Singh Bhullar (supra) is

per incuriam. There is no dispute that in the same decision

this Court has accepted the ratio enunciated in Triveniben

(supra) (Constitution Bench) and also noted some other

judgments following the ratio laid down in those cases that

unexplained long delay may be one of the grounds for

commutation of sentence of death into life imprisonment.

There is no good reason to disqualify all TADA cases as a

class from relief on account of delay in execution of death

sentence. Each case requires consideration on its own

facts.
