    SEEMS HE HANGED HIMSELF FOR NOT HAVING ENOUGH DUTIES.

    No one has the right to take another persons life, legally or illegally. Why are we promoting death sentences?

    In a place where corruption is high, how can you even let someone take someones life on the pretext of "law"!!! It is a fact that no one can take another persons life for whatever reason it is. So for such cases, life sentence is the way to go!!!

    Rubbish mentality never applicable. Death sentence for who took another life in illegally.Law is must safe the law obedient people.English law never reduce the crime rate.

    TIME WASTED FOR COURTS,POLICE AND PUBLIC,PRESIDENT NEVER HANG A CRIMINAL, HANG ONLY GOOD CITIZENS

    No one has the right to take one's life illegaly or legally,but who ever forfeit illegalyy should be chased out of this Planet legally!!!

    Wow!!! Such a short lived case!!! Only 17 yrs!!! Only people who benefited from the ordeal is the lawyers and the magistrate. Fined Rs. 10,000 for stealing Rs. 500,000. That's a joke and a half especially when you factor in the inflation for the past 17 yrs.
    Death sentence is preferable because for one it weeds out the evil and also saves tax payer's money used to keep these goons in jail.
