The Supreme Court will hear the petition filed against the release of all 11 accused on 29 November: Bilkis Bano Case
The Supreme Court on Tuesday said it will hear on November 29 the pleas challenging the remission of sentence and release of 11 convicts in the 2002 Bilkis Bano gang-rape case and murder of her seven family members during the Gujarat riots. A bench of Justices Ajay Rastogi and C T Ravikumar directed that the reply filed by the Gujarat government be made available to all parties. The petitioners have been given time to file their reply to the affidavit filed by the Gujarat government.
“A counter has been filed by the Gujarat government. Let counter affidavit be made available to all counsels,” the bench said.
The Gujarat government on Monday had told the apex court that petitioners challenging the remission are nothing but an “interloper” and a “busybody”.
It had also said that since the investigation in the case was carried out by the CBI, it had obtained “suitable orders” for grant of remission of the convicts from the Centre.
Bilkis Bano was 21 years old and five-month pregnant when she was gang-raped while fleeing the riots that broke out after the Godhra train burning incident. Her three-year-old daughter was among the seven family members killed.
The 11 men convicted in the case walked out free from the Godhra sub-jail on August 15 after the Gujarat government allowed their release under its remission policy. They had completed more than 15 years in jail.

Mumbai man goes on stabbing spree in residential building, kills 3, injures 2
In a shocker, a middle-aged man went on a stabbing spree in a Mumbai residential building on Friday, attacking five persons, of which three have succumbed, and two others are seriously injured, police said here.
The attacker, identified as Chetan Gala, 54, has been arrested after the mayhem which occurred around 3.30 pm, sending panic waves in the locality.
According to officials of the Dr. D. B. Marg Police Station, the incident occurred at the Parvati Mansion, an old-style building with common passages in a residential neighbourhood of Grant Road
Locals who shot videos showed Gala rushing to another person on the second floor of the building and repeatedly stabbing him till he collapsed in a pool of blood.
Then he nonchalantly walked down to the first floor where another man was descending the stairs even as the crowds below warned him to run to safety as the attacker was coming behind him.
At least two other panicky residents could be seen running around with the people assembled below screaming at the attacker.
The exact motives behind the serial killing bout is not clear and the police have lodged a FIR and probing further.
The injured were rushed to the Sir H. N. Reliance Foundation Hospital and the BMC’s Nair Hospital nearby where the condition of two is said to be serious.
Police said that the accused Gala suddenly stepped out brandishing a knife and started stabbing people at random around, targeting at least five, among them a husband-wife couple.
Horrified locals called up the police and a team rushed there to take control, and managed to overpower him soon.
Police are recording witnesses statements and checking the accused’s relationship with his family, financial angles, and even mental health issues.
