Judiciary in India is in full action it seems. The Supreme Court has given death penalty to four accused in two separate cases.
In the first case the court ordered death penalty to a husband and wife. They had murdered eight people including four children. The youngest was only one-and-a-half months old.
In another case, two youths have been awarded death penalty in the connection with raping and murdering a teenage girl.
With this decision, the court has established a rare instance with awarding four death sentences in a span of 48 hours.
On Thursday, the Bench of Justices B N Agrawal and P P Naolekar had imposed the death penalty on the accused couple from Hissar for mass murder.
While on Wednesday, the other Bench comprising Justices Arijit Pasayat and L S Panta described two youths as sexually obsessed youngsters who attempted to rape many.
In another court decision, death sentence has been awarded to three AIADMK workers for burning three students to death in Tamil Nadu in 2000.
On Friday, a Salem court awarded Neduthezhian, Madhu and Muniappan to hang. They were accused of torching a bus carrying college students.
With this judgment, the total number of death sentences awarded all over the country in the last three days to seven.
Now, the debate has been started again on the pending clemency plea for Mohammad Afzal Guru. Afzal was awarded the death penalty last year for his role in the 2001 attack on Parliament.
