President Mukherjee rejects mercy plea of death convict Natikar New Delhi, Jan. 14 : President Pranab Mukherjee has rejected the mercy plea of death row convict Saibanna Ningappa Natikar, who had murdered his wife and daughter.

The President''s Secretariat rejected Natikar''s mercy plea on January 4th, according to a Rashtrapati Bhavan statement.

Natikar is presently lodged in the central prison at Belgaum in Karnataka.
