Bilkis Bano Approaches Supreme Court Challenging Release Of 11 Convicts

Bilkis Bano Case

Bilkis Bano has approached the Supreme Court challenging the release of 11 men convicted of gang-raping her in the 2002 Gujarat riots.

Bilkis Banos’ lawyer mentioned the matter before the Chief Justice of India, DY Chandrachud, for listing. The CJI said he will examine the issue to determine whether both pleas can be heard together and if they can be heard before the same bench.

Gujarat government had defended before the Supreme Court its decision to grant remission to the 11 convicts in the Bilkis Bano case saying remission was granted as they completed 14 years sentence in prison and their “behaviour was found to be good”.

The State government said it has considered the cases of all 11 prisoners as per the policy of 1992 and remission was granted on August 10, 2022, and the Central government also approved the pre-mature release of convicts.
