Supreme Court verdict; Bilkis Bano;

A Welcome Verdict

The Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) welcomes the judgment by the Supreme Court nailing down the Gujarat government’s illegal actions of granting remission to eleven convicts who had been sentenced to life for gang raping of pregnant Bilkis Bano, members of her family and also mass murdering at least fourteen of them in the 2002 Gujarat communal carnage.  The court has categorically asked the convicts to surrender back to prison within two weeks.
