NEW DELHI: Security has been provided to the judge who signed the warrant of execution for Mohammed Afzal Guru, sentenced to death for involvement in the 2001 attack on Parliament.

Sources in security agencies said Additional Sessions Judge Ravinder Kaur has been given ``Y'' category security and provided two personal security officers round the clock. One of the PSOs will be armed with fully automatic weapons, they said.

The Judge had on September 26 signed the warrant of execution for Guru's hanging on October 20, which now stands deferred as President A.P.J. Abdul Kalam is yet to decide on a mercy plea submitted by his family. PTI
