    Haryana man gets death penalty for honour killing of sister

    In a case of honour killing, a 26- year-old man was on Wednesday awarded the death penalty by a court in Hisar town in Haryana for murdering his sister in February last year.

    The death penalty was awarded to Ashok of Juglan village in Hisar district, around 250 km from here, by additional District and Sessions Judge Pankaj on Wednesday.

    The court held Ashok guilty for murdering his sister Kiran on February 9, 2017, after she got married to a man called Rohtas earlier in August 2015.

    The woman's family was opposed to the marriage as Rohtas belonged to a different community.

    Kiran was found dead under suspicious circumstances in the village on February 9 last year. She was hastily cremated by the family.

    Rohtas later complained to the police alleging that Kiran was a victim of honor killing.

    Following this, the police arrested Ashok for the death of Kiran.

    Nirbhaya: SC rejects plea for immediate execution of 4 convicts

    News Today

    New Delhi: The Supreme Court Thursday dismissed a plea seeking directions for immediate execution of the four death row convicts in the 2012 Nirbhaya gang rape and murder case, saying, “you want us to go around Delhi and execute these people?”

    “What kind of prayer you are making?” a bench of Justices Madan B Lokur and Deepak Gupta told the petitioner. “You are making the court a joke,” it said.

    The 23-year-old paramedic student was raped on the intervening night of December 16-17, 2012 inside a running bus in South Delhi by six persons and severely assaulted before being thrown out on the road. She died on 29 December 2012 at Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore.

    One of the accused Ram Singh had hanged himself in the jail and another, a juvenile, was convicted of rape and murder. He was given the maximum sentence of three years’ imprisonment in a reform facility.

    On 9 July, the apex court dismissed the pleas of three convicts – Mukesh (31), Pawan Gupta (24) and Vinay Sharma (25) – seeking review of its 2017 judgement upholding the capital punishment awarded to them by the Delhi High Court and the trial court in the case.

    The fourth death row convict, Akshay Kumar Singh (33), has not filed a review plea in the apex court. During the hearing on Thursday, advocate Alakh Alok Srivastava, the petitioner in the case, told the bench that though provision of death penalty was there in cases of rape-cum-murder, it was not acting as a deterrent due to delays in execution of such convicts. “Is death penalty acting as a deterrent?

    Please do not file cases like this otherwise we will ask the registry not to accept it,” the bench said. “You want us to go around Delhi and execute these people? Dismissed,” the bench said while rejecting the plea. The public interest litigation (PIL) had said that despite a lapse of more than four and a half months from the date of dismissal of the review petitions of three convicts in Nirbhaya case, the death penalty has not yet been executed.

    The plea had said that in rape-cum-murder cases, the fate of the accused must be decided in a period of eight months from the lower court to the apex court. Such delay in execution of death penalty was acting as a bad precedent and had resulted in increasing incidents of rapes being reported on daily basis, it had said.

    The fact that death row convicts in Nirbhaya case have not yet been hanged despite over five years of their initial conviction “apparently gives an impression in the minds of the rapists that they would also be harmless if they commit such heinous crimes,” the plea had said.

    The plea had also sought guidelines to prescribe strict timeline for speedy execution of death row convicts in rape-cum-murder cases, so that remedies of appeal in high court, appeal, review, curative petition in the apex court and mercy petition before the President are exhausted by convicts within a maximum period of eight months.

    Death Penalty Of Man Convicted For Mumbai Techie's Rape And Murder Upheld

    The verdict came following an appeal filed by Chandrabhan Sanap, who had challenged an October 2015 order of the trial court convicting and sentencing him to death on charges of rape, kidnap and murder.

    NDTV

    MUMBAI: The Bombay High Court Thursday confirmed the death penalty awarded to a 30-year-old man for the rape and murder of a woman techie, saying the maximum punishment was appropriate in the case, considering "increasing incidents of crime against women" in India.
    Chandrabhan Sanap, was pronounced guilty by a special court in 2015 and awarded the death sentence for the rape and murder of the 23-year-old software professional who was employed with a leading IT firm in Mumbai.

    A bench of justices Ranjit More and Bharati Dangre said while the 2012 (Delhi) gang rape case -- where the victim was a paramedical student -- brought in a criminal amendment to make rape laws stricter, incidents such as the Shakti Mills rape case in Mumbai and countless other cases of sexual assault continued to take place across the nation.

    "The increasing incidents (of crime against women) have led to the entire womenfolk in the country questioning their safety. They expect the legislature and the judiciary to restore their faith in the system," the bench said.

    The judges described the convict as a "menace to society" and said rising crime against women should be tackled on all fronts.

    "Crime against women, which are on the rise, need to be tackled on all fronts in a manner which should respond to the society's cry for justice against such criminals.

    "The victim was done to death by the accused for no fault of her own, except for a reason that she is a woman and she fell prey to the sinister design of the accused to fulfil his lust. The said attitude of the accused, according to us, deserves a death sentence," the bench said.

    The verdict came following an appeal filed by Sanap, who had challenged an October 2015 order of the trial court convicting and sentencing him to death on charges of rape, kidnap and murder.

    The Maharashtra government had filed a plea seeking that Sanap's death sentence be ratified by the high court.

    As per the prosecution, on January 5, 2014, the victim reached the Lokmanya Tilak Terminus railway station in suburban Mumbai from her native place in Andhra Pradesh after visiting her parents during a small break from work.

    Around 5 am, she met Sanap outside the station and he offered to drop her to YWCA hostel in suburban Andheri, where she stayed, on his motorbike in return for Rs. 300.

    She agreed to his offer. However, on the way Sanap took her to a secluded spot near Kanjurmarg, raped and killed her, said the prosecution.

    He partially burnt her dead body and dumped it in the bushes off the Eastern Express Highway, where it was found by the victim's family on January 14 that year.

    While Sanap denied all charges against him, the trial court convicted him, holding the case falls in the "rarest of rare" category and thus, warranted the death sentence.

    On Thursday, the high court agreed with the trial court order and held that the case was the rarest of rare one and that the "enormity" of Sanap's crime had "shocked the conscience of the society".

    "The offence of murder was committed for a petty achievement of satisfying the lust of the accused (Sanap). He was barbaric, and showed no regard to the life of a hapless young girl," the bench said.

    The judges also dismissed the defence's plea for leniency on the ground of Sanap's good conduct as an under trial.

    They said Sanap was "a menace to the society" and that he showed no possibility of reformation.

    The bench also lamented that women in the country had to face rampant attacks on their safety and wellbeing.

    "In the modern scenario, women don't expect to be worshipped. However, they surely expect to be able to breathe safe, and feel safe in and outside of their houses," the bench said in its 167-page verdict.

    Man Gets Death Penalty For Raping, Killing His 6-Year-Old Daughter

    The 42-year-old accused suspected his wife's character and believed the victim was not his biological child, the prosecution said.

    NDTV

    BHOPAL: A man was awarded death sentence by a special court on Monday for raping and killing his six-year-old daughter.
    The 42-year-old accused suspected his wife's character and believed the victim was not his biological child, the prosecution said.

    He engaged in unnatural sex with the girl and also raped her, a prosecution official said.

    He later hanged her with the help of a stole on the night of March 15, 2017, the official said.

    Terming the incident rarest of the rare, special judge for the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO) Kumudini Patel awarded death sentence to the accused.

    Post-mortem report confirmed rape, unnatural sex and strangulation. The victim's DNA report matched with the accused following which he was arrested, the official said.

    The prosecution proved the case on the basis of scientific evidences following which the court awarded capital punishment to him under section 302 of the IPC and life imprisonment under section 376, Director General, prosecution, Rajendra Kumar, said.

    "Though main witnesses turned hostile, scientific evidence of post-mortem and DNA had helped us in proving our case," he said.

    With this, the total number of death sentences awarded so far in such matters (where victims were minors) has risen to 21 this year, Mr Kumar added.

    The figure is highest in the country and a record in the history of state's prosecution department, he said.

    The first case to be taken up will be the Shakti Mills gang rape of a photo journalist in 2013. The conviction of the trio, Vijay Jadhav, Salim Ansari and Kasim Shaikh, were based on the new law which stipulated the death penalty for convicts of multiple rapes.

    Hindustan Times

    The Bombay high court (HC) this year will decide on 10 confirmation cases, wherein the convicts have been awarded death penalties by various trial courts. The arguments are scheduled to commence before the bench of justices AS Oka and AS Gadkari on January 8.

    According to a public prosecutor, the first case to be taken up will be the Shakti Mills gang rape of a photo journalist in 2013. The conviction of the trio, Vijay Jadhav, Salim Ansari and Kasim Shaikh, were based on the new law which stipulated the death penalty for convicts of multiple rapes.

    The second case is that of the 7/11 serial train blasts at Matunga, Mahim, Bandra, Khar Subway, Jogeshwari, Borivli and Mira Road railway stations on July 11, 2006. The trial court convicted twelve persons for planting and detonating bombs through timer circuits in the firstclass compartments of seven trains on the western line. While five were given death penalty, the other seven were awarded a life sentence in 2015. Those on the death row include Kamal Ansari, Faisal Shaikh, Ehtesham Siddhiqui, Naveed Hussain Khan and Asif Khan.

    The third case is that of Pune resident Vishwajeet Masalkar, who was convicted of killing his wife, mother and two-and-half-year-old daughter in 2012. He was given the death penalty by the Pune trial court in 2016. Masalkar had committed the heinous crime after an argument with his mother and wife over his affair with a colleague.

    The fourth case is that of a hotel management student, Ankur Panwar, who was convicted of throwing acid on a 23-year-old nurse Preethi Rathi, resulting in her death, in 2013. He was given a death sentence in 2016. Panwar, who was Rathi’s neighbour, had followed her on to a train in Delhi and threw acid on her right before she alighted at Mumbai.

    In the fifth case, two people, Rahimuddin Shaikh and Sandeep Shirsat, were given the death sentence by a Thane trial court in 2017. The duo was convicted for raping two women who worked as garbage collectors in Belapur in 2012, resulting in the death of one of them. The duo had slashed their body parts and fled, assuming both of them were dead.

    In the sixth case, the Pune trial court awarded a death sentence to three persons – Yogesh Raut, Mahesh Thakur and Vishwas Kadam – for kidnapping, raping and killing a software engineer in 2009. The death penalty was awarded in 2017.

    The seventh case is one of honour killing, wherein a Nashik resident, Eknath Kumbharkar, killed his pregnant daughter for marrying a man from a different caste in 2013. According to investigation, Kumbharkar had premeditated the murder. He had visited his daughter’s house, asked her to accompany him to visit her mother, and strangled her on the way. He was awarded the death sentence in 2017.

    In the eighth case, six men, five Marathas and one Dalit, killed three Dalit men and dumped their bodies in a septic tank in 2013. Ramesh Darandale, Popat Darandale, Ganesh Darandale, Prakash Darandale, Sandeep Kurhe and Ashok Navgire were convicted in 2018.

    The ninth case is that of Ramdas Shinde, who was convicted in 2018 for murdering a woman and her six-year-old son, after she turned down his demand for sexual favours in 2016. After the incident, Shinde had called a friend and confessed to the crime. The woman lived with her husband in a house rented out by Shinde’s father.

    The tenth case is that of Imtiyaz Shaikh who kidnapped and murdered the 12-year-old son of his former employer in 2012. He was given the death sentence by a Mumbai sessions court in 2018. According to the prosecution, Shaikh sought revenge from his former employer after he was fired from his job at an embroidery workshop.

    Allahabad HC Confirms Death Penalty For Man Accused Of Murdering Brother & His Entire Family

    “He slayed six lives to quench his thirst. The entire incident is extremely revolting and shocks the collective conscience of the community.”

    Live Law

    The Allahabad High Court on Wednesday confirmed death penalty awarded to a man convicted for the murder of six persons.

    Gambhir Singh was convicted by the trial court after it found him guilty of the murder of his brother and his entire family, consisting of a wife and four children, by slitting their necks. All the children were below the age of five. The motive behind the murder was some property dispute between the brothers.

    Upholding the conviction recorded by the trial court, the bench observed: "All family members were done to death. Circumstances established by the prosecution are firm, cogent and believable. Chain of events are completed and linked with each other. There is no chance of false implication of accused."

    The court also took note of the aggravating and mitigating circumstances in this case. Various case-laws in the matter of awarding death sentence were also taken note of.

    The bench finally observed: "He slayed six lives to quench his thirst. The entire incident is extremely revolting and shocks the collective conscience of the community. Murders were committed in gruesome, merciless and brutal manner… Balancing mitigating and aggravating factors and looking to the fact that appellant has committed crime in a really shocking manner showing depravity of mind, in our view, the aggravating circumstances outweigh the mitigating circumstances by all canons of logic and punishment of life imprisonment would neither serve the ends of justice nor will be an appropriate punishment. Here is a case which can be said to be in the category of "rarest of rare" case and justify award of death punishment to accused."

    MP High Court Awards Death Sentence To Child Rapist

    The court said that the the law should impose a punishment befitting the crime.

    Outlook India Magazine

    The Madhya Pradesh High Court on Friday pronounced death sentence to a schoolteacher in a case of raping a four-year-old girl in Satna district.

    Confirming the death penalty of the convict, Mahendra Singh Gond, a division bench of justices P K Jaiswal and Anjuli Palo said the court should impose a punishment befitting the crime.

    Gond, a schoolteacher, was convicted and sentenced to death by a trial court in Satna district in September last year, government advocate Brahmadatt Singh said.

    The convict had appealed against the trial court judgment in the high court.

    The bench observed, "In the present scenario, where such crimes are continuously increasing, reformative ideas are totally ineffective.

    "Justice demands that the court should impose a punishment befitting the crime so that it reflects the public abhorrence of the crime."

    It further said, "It could not be conceived from a person, who is performing the pious duty of a teacher, who is expected to nurture the character and morality in the children of the nation, to commit such kind of a heinous act which is tantamount to moral turpitude."

    The trial court had sentenced Gond to death under the recently-introduced section 376(a)(b) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

    The convict was also found guilty under IPC section 363 (kidnapping), for which he was sentenced to seven years of rigorous imprisonment, besides being fined Rs 5,000, Singh said.

    The incident had occurred on July 1, 2018 in Parasmaniya village when the convict had gone to meet the father of the girl, he added.

    Finding the girl sleeping alone in the courtyard of her house at night, he had taken her to a nearby field and raped her, the government advocate said.

    The girl was found in an unconscious state by her parents near the field the next morning, the counsel said.

    Subsequently, the father of the girl had lodged an FIR with the local police and Gond was arrested, he added.
