Rampur (Uttar Pradesh) [India], February 19 (ANI): Amroha death row inmate, Shabnam, who was convicted for killing seven members of her family in April 2008, on Friday filed another mercy petition before Uttar Pradesh Governor Anandiben Patel.
Convict Shabnam has also approached UP Governor earlier for pardon, but Patel had rejected her plea.

According to Rampur Jail Superintendent, lawyers of the convict met her on Thursday.
Earlier, her 12-year-old son Mohammed Taj had appealed to the President to forgive and pardon his mother.
Shabnam and her lover Saleem had been convicted of killing seven members of her family after sedating them in April 2008.
The death warrant, about date and time of hanging, has not been issued by Amroha court yet. (ANI)
