Bilkis Bano case : Bombay HC rejects CBI plea

Agencies, Mumbai

The Bombay High Court today rejected a CBI plea seeking death sentence for at least three of the 11 convicts in the March 2002 Bilkis Bano gangrape case.

The court also set aside the acquittal of five policemen in the same case and directed the CBI to investigate them.

On March 3, 2002, at the height of the Gujarat riots following the Godhra train incident, Bilkis Bano and her family members were attacked by a riotous mob in Devgad-Baria village near Dahod.
