बारा हत्याकांड मामले में फांसी की सज़ा को उम्रकैद में बदला जाना: अधूरा न्याय

1992 में बिहार के हुए बारा हत्याकांड के मामले, जिसमें 35 भूमिहार जाति के लोगों की हत्या हुई थी, के सज़ायाफ्ता नन्हे लाल मोची, वीर कुअर पासवान, कृष्णा मोची (तीनों दलित) और धमेन्द्र सिंह की फांसी की सज़ा को राष्ट्रपति द्वारा उम्रकैद में बदले जाने का पीयूडीआर स्वागत करता है। परन्तु इस मामले में फांसी को उम्रकैद में बदला जाना अधूरा न्याय है क्योंकि इससे संबंधित शर्तों के बारे में किसी तरह की स्पष्टता के अभाव में ये चार कैदी अनिश्चित समय के लिए जेल में सड़ते रहेंगे। इन चार कैदियों को 2001 में टाडा डेज़िगनेटिड कोर्ट ने एक अत्यधिक पक्षपाती मुकदमे द्वारा फांसी की सज़ा सुनाई थी और 2002 में सर्वोच्च न्याय

The four prisoners were sentenced to death in 2001 by a TADA designated court in an extremely biased trial and the sentence was upheld by the Supreme Court in 2002.
