OVERVIEW

Shabnam Ali’s twelve-year-old son has appealed to the President, Ram Nath Kovind on social media to review her mercy plea again. Shabnam can become the first woman to be hanged to death in independent India.

He is seen holding a placard in a video that reads, 'President Uncle, please forgive my mother Shabnam'. The video went viral on social media after the news that preparations have started to hang her transpired. It should be noted that there is no official death warrant yet.

She has been convicted of killing her family members by serving them milk laced with sedative, and then slitting their throats.

ABOUT THE BOY

Shabnam’s son was born in Moradabad jail. When he turned six, he was handed over to his guardian by the Child Welfare Committee in Amroha.

Meanwhile Shabnam and Saleem (her lover) were convicted and sentenced to death. This verdict by the sessions court was challenged by Shabnam.

The boy is taken to the Amroha Child Welfare Committee and then to Rampur jail, where his mother is confined, every three months.

OTHER DETAILS

Even though Shabnam has not used up all her legal options, the Mathura jail is preparing to hang her. It is the only place where women can be hanged, and it has never been used since Independence.

It is a 150-year-old structure.

While Shabnam will be hanged at the Mathura district jail, it is still not clear where Salim will be hanged.
