INDIA: DEATH SENTENCE TO 11 FOR KILLING WOMAN TO GRAB LAND IN NADIA

February 4, 2016: Eleven people including a former Trinamool Congress leader were awarded death sentence by Nadia district court for killing a woman to grab government land about 14 months ago.
Judge Partha Sarathi Mukhopadhyay slapped death penalty on the 11 accused for shooting to death Aparna Bag on November 23, 2014. One accused, Manabesh Biswas is still absconding.
The 11 were convicted on February 3 and the punishment was pronounced by the court on February 4.
They were charged under sections 9B of Explosive, 27/35 of Arms Act, IPC 307 (attempt to murder) and 302 (murder).
Among those who were sentenced to death is former Krishnaganj Trinamool Congress leader Lankeswar Ghosh, but the ruling party has said that he was not its member.
The woman was killed when Ghosh along with his gang tried to seize land at Ghungragachhi under Krishnaganj block, which belongs to Refugee and Refugee Rehabilitation Department of West Bengal Government.
The land was being tilled by 55 families for long and they claimed to have its possession. Some had even sold portions they claimed were theirs.
The 11 sentenced to death were Ghosh, Palash Ghosh, Sanat Ghosh, Shyamal Ghosh, Jhantu Ghosh, Goutam Ghosh, Paresh Ghosh, Joydeb Ghosh, Nepal Ghosh, Rajkumar Ghosh and Basu Ghosh.  (Sources: rediff.com, 4/2/2016)
