Islamabad, Feb 11 (IANS) Pakistan Monday was circumspect on the hanging of Indian parliament attack convict Afzal Guru, with the foreign ministry saying it did not want to go into the details of the trial process.

A foreign ministry spokesman did not directly comment on the execution and said that he would not want to go into details of the trial process, reported Xinhua.

The Pakistani foreign ministry said: "We reaffirm our solidarity with the People of Jammu and Kashmir and express our serious concern on the high-handed measures taken by India in the wake of Afzal Guru's execution to suppress the aspirations of Kashmiris by arrests and detention of Kashmiri leaders, curfew, news blackout and other coercive means."

"We call for the lifting of repressive measures and immediate release of Hurriyat leaders," the foreign ministry spokesman said in a statement.

Afzal Guru was hanged in New Delhi's Tihar Jail after he was convicted for plotting the Dec 13, 2001, terror attack on the Indian parliament that left 10 people dead.
