The Bombay high court upheld on Thursday life sentences for 11 men for gangraping Bilkis Bano during the 2002 anti-Muslim violence and convicted six people for tampering evidence in one of India’s most high-profile riot cases. The court, however, rejected the CBI’s appeal to put three of the 11 men to death. A division bench of justice VK Tahilramani and Mridula Bhatkar also dismissed the defence argument that Bilkis’ testimony was “bogus” and “full of contradictions”.
