Overturning their acquittal,the Supreme Court has sentenced three persons to life imprisonment for the murder of six members of a family in a 1991 honour killing case. The court consciously refrained from awarding death penalty to Master Krishna,Ram Sewak and Kishori on the ground that the case was over 20 years old.

A Bench headed by Justice H S Bedi criticised the Allahabad HC for acquitting the accused in 2002 on the basis of testimonies of a child witness. The trial court had earlier condemned the men to death.

On August 10/11,1991,Gulzari,wife Ramwati,their three sons and brother were shot dead in UP’s Farukhabad district as Krishna suspected Ramwati had helped his daughter elope.
