Two death convicts acquitted by Delhi High Court in Lajpat Nagar blast case

The Delhi High Court on November 22, acquitted two death sentence convicts and commuted the capital punishment to life imprisonment for another in Lajpat Nagar (Delhi) bomb blast case (May 21, 1996), reports The Hindu. It, however, upheld the life term awarded to the fourth accused. All the four (alleged Jammu & Kashmir Islamic Front-JKIF militants) had been held guilty and sentenced by a lower court in 2010.  

A Division Bench, comprising Justices S. Ravindra Bhat and G.P. Mittal, said: “The nature of grave prosecution lapses, in regard to various issues such as lack of proof connecting some of the accused with the bomb incident, failure to hold TIP [Test Identification Parade] of articles and the accused, … [and] not recording the statements of vital witnesses…. underline not only its lapses and inefficiencies, but also throw up a question mark as to the nature and truthfulness of the evidence produced.”
