The Supreme Court said Monday that if the government fails to take a decision on terror convict Devinderpal Singh Bhullar's plea seeking the commutation of his death sentence into life imprisonment, then it would decide the matter.

The apex court bench headed by Chief Justice P. Sathasivam said this as Attorney General G.E. Vahanvati told a court that the government has yet not taken the decision and sought some more time.

Accepting the plea by the attorney general, the court directed the listing of the matter March 26.
