"The letter which was booked in Delhi at 4pm yesterday was delivered at around 5:30pm today," Samuel said.

He said the letter was delivered by the postal staff despite tension in Guru's hometown.

Guru's cousin Mohammad Yasin denied the family had received any letter by post on Tuesday.

Guru had written a letter to his wife hours before he was executed on Saturday morning in the high-security Tihar jail.
