No SC relief for IPS officer in Bilkis case 30.5.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The Supreme Court has refused to stay the conviction of IPS officer R S Bhagora in the 2002 Bilkis Bano gang-rape case, which is one of several ongoing Gujarat riot cases. A bench of Justices A K Sikri and Deepak Gupta did not see the need to expedite the case as the convicted officer had already undergone the sentence. The bench put off the hearing to the second week of July, observing that the fine would be Rs 15,000 only. Currently serving in Gujarat, Bhagora is one of the five policemen convicted in the case by the Bombay High Court on May 4, after being acquitted by the trial court. He is one of the 11 people convicted in the case (one dead), including two doctors. Pleading the court to stay Bhagora's conviction, the counsel representing the IPS officer said he would be terminated in accordance with service rules if the conviction is not stayed. The high court had said the five policemen and the two doctors have been convicted under Indian Penal Code sections 218 (not performing their duties) and ...

2002 Gujarat riots won’t be described as ‘anti-Muslim’ in NCERT Class 12 textbooks, says report 20.5.2017 DNA: Mumbai
The  National Council of Educational Research And Training​ (NCERT) textbooks will now describe the 2002 Gujarat carnage as 'Gujarat riots' and not 'anti-Muslim riots,' according to a Hindustan Times  report.  The decision to make the changes in a Class 12 textbook, published in 2007 during the Congress-led UPA government’s tenure, was reportedly taken during a meeting of the course review committee with representatives from NCERT and CBSE .  Around 58 persons lost their lives when the S-6 coach of Sabarmati Express was torched at Godhra Railway Station on February 27, 2002. The incident had triggered large scale riots in Gujarat in which around 1,000 people, mostly of the minority community, were killed. A chapter titled “Politics in India since Independence” (page 187) in the Class XII political science textbook has a passage under the heading “Anti-Muslim riots in Gujarat.” said the report. The move has been termed as a routine to keep textbooks updated. Stating that NCERT is carrying out a review of ...

Bilkis: how a riot victim stood up to her rapists 14.5.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
Bilkis Bano was gang-raped and saw 14 members of her family being murdered by a Hindu mob during the 2002 anti-Muslim riots in Gujarat. Her 15-year battle for justice finally bore fruit last week, when the Bombay high court confirmed the life sentences of 11 men found guilty of rape and murder. The court also convicted five policemen and two doctors, who were earlier cleared by the trial court, of destroying evidence. The landmark ruling, Bilkis Bano told the BBC in Delhi on Sunday, had finally given her hope of peace. "I always had full faith in the judiciary and I'm grateful to the Bombay high court for the order. It's a very good judgement and I'm very happy with it," she said. "I think the state government and the police were all complicit in the crime, because the accused were given full freedom to rape and pillage," she said. "I feel vindicated that the court has convicted the police and the doctors too. I feel I've received justice." Bano's fight for justice has been long and nightmarish but, she ...
