10Oct13

The conviction of 26 accused in a 16-year-old case of Laxmanpur-Bathe massacre of 58 Dalits in village of Bihar has reserved on Wednesday by the Patna High Court.

Out of 26 persons, 16 were awarded the death sentence and life to 10 in a Trial Court in 2010. However, on 9 October, 2013 the High Court released the 26 from all charges all because lack of evidence.

16 years ago, on December 1, 1997, suspected members of the Ranveer Sena had killed total 58 Dalits, which includes 27 women and 10 innocent children in village Laxmanpur-Bathe, district-Jehanabad (now Arwal). An outlawed upper caste militia acquitted by court from all charges though they blameworthy for Laxmanpur-Bathe massacre.

“We are of the view that prosecution witnesses are not reliable, so all convicted persons are entitled to the benefit of doubt,” the HC said.
