Hundreds of American Sikhs staged demonstration in front of the U.N. Headquarters in New York to voice support for a Sikh nationalist, Professor Devinder Pal Singh Bhullar, who has been sentenced to death in India.

Bhullar was convicted for allegedly carrying out a bomb blast in New Delhi in 1993, which claimed nine lives. His mercy plea was rejected in May 2011.

The demonstrators submitted a memorandum to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon urging him to intervene and prevent his execution.
