2 get death for killing man who fought for sister's honour

New Delhi, Augst 27, 2013, PTI:

Two brothers were awarded death penalty by a Delhi court on Tuesday for brutally killing a man who had objected to their teasing his sister.

The court said it was a “rarest of rare” case in which the brothers initiated the crime.

Additional sessions judge Kamini Lau said that keeping in view the nature of the crime and the manner in which it was planned and committed and the conduct of convicts Sunil and Sudhir, they do not deserve any leniency.

“Certain category of perpetrators of crime who, if not removed from the circulation of the society, would destroy it and this act of convicts Sunil and Sudhir in brutally and publicly silencing the voice of a brother, who had dared to stand up against them to protect the honour of his sister, has invited extreme indignation of the community and shocked the collective conscience of the society,” the court said.

The judge said crime against women has to be tackled with “all earnestness”.
“Accordingly, they both be hanged by the neck till they are dead, subject to confirmation of the High Court of Delhi,” the judge said while pronouncing the verdict.
The court also gave life term to convicts Surender, Suresh, Raj Kumar and Sanjay and imposed a fine of Rs 1 lakh each on them, which would be given to Subhash’s family as compensation.

The incident took place on July 20, 2009 when some ‘kanwariyas’ (followers of Lord Shiva) were dancing on the road in Sultanpuri while residents of the area were watching them. The 19-year-old girl was also watching the celebrations along with her mother when at 11:30 pm Sunil and Sudhir, who were local ruffians with several criminal cases pending against them, made obscene gestures to her.
