If they've come down with such a drastic decision, I hope they have the right guys. Nothing would be more terrible than if India's "super" cops managed to find some scapegoats to take the blame for the blasts - neither for justice itself, nor for the men involved.

Oh yes I agree completely. And I am opposed to capital punishment in practice (though not in principle) ... especially in as capricious and lax a judicial system as India.

I am opposed to capital punishment too. In principle and practise. The only exception I make is when pedophiles and young children are involved. I cannot get my head around simple life in prison for such people. Must be the mother in me :)
