The Fidayeen attack was purportedly carried out jointly by the LeT and JeM. The dangerous intentions of the operation were self-evident. Hundreds of MPs along with several prominent ministers were present at the Parliament during the time of the attack. Afzal Guru was held guilty of participating in the entire conspiracy. He was hanged on 9 February 2013 after a long legal procedure. Predictably, Pakistan condemned the capital punishment to Afzal Guru.
