Terrorists slaughtering innocents should forget their families, says SC
New Delhi: Supreme Court on Monday took a stern stand against convicted terrorists, saying those who kills innocent people will not be given bail. It said that terrorists should not cry foul over having a family after slaughtering people.
The court rejected Mohammad Naushad's plea regarding the interim bail for attending his daughter's wedding.
"Those who indulge in indiscriminate killings of innocent people must forget their family ties," observed a bench of Chief Justice Jagdish Singh Khehar, Justice D.Y. Chandrachud and Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul
It could be mentioned here that Naushad is serving life term for his invovement in explosions in Delhi on May 21, 1996. About 13 died and 38 injured in the deadly attack.
"This is such a heinous crime. Those who carry out such activities must realise this is the end of the families. You cannot kill citizens indiscriminately and say I have my family, my sons, my daughters," the bench said.
"You cannot have both. Either this or that. If you want to kill indiscriminately you cannot say I have a family. Once you kill, that is the end of your family," Chief Justice Khehar observed.
