Afzal Gurus hanging wrong, badly handled: Tharoor

New Delhi: Terming Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru's hanging "wrong and badly handled", Congress leader Shashi Tharoor Monday said his body should have returned to the family.

"I think the hanging was both wrong and badly handled. Family should have been warned, given a last meeting and body returned," he tweeted on second death anniversary of Guru.

Tharoor's comments come after five Congress legislators in Jammu and Kashmir said in a signed statement that Guru's hanging was a "mistake".

Guru, who was given a death penalty in the 2001 Parliament attack case, was hanged on Feb 9, 2013.
