CPI Welcomes SC Verdict on Bilkis Bano case

The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India welcomes the historic judgment setting aside the remission order of Gujarat government issued in August 2022 which had freed the 11 convicts in the Bilkis Bano rape-murder case and sending the convicts back to jail.

It may be recalled here that the rape-murder incident took place during 2002 Gujarat riots, when Narendra Modi was the chief minister of Gujarat. BJP went to shameless heights to protect these rapists and murderers.

The Party feels that the remission was insult to humanity and in particular anti-woman on account of the horrific nature of the crime. The National Federation of Indian Women (NFIW) was also one of the petitioners, who had moved the apex court against remission.
