"Bhullar is undergoing treatment at the Institute of Human Behaviour in Dilshad Garden," Tulsi's office told IANS.

Delhi's director general (prisons) Vimla Mehra told IANS: "Bhullar is not in Tihar jail."

Bhullar was given capital punishment for the 1993 blast at the Youth Congress office in Delhi which left nine dead.

The attack was targeted against then Youth Congress leader MS Bitta.

Bhullar had filed a mercy petition on January 14, 2003, which was rejected by the President May 25, 2011.
