Court has suspended sentence of the accused; Jayant Sinha on welcoming lynching convicts

Jayant Sinha

New Delhi | Union Minister Jayant Sinha on Saturday clarified his stand on welcoming 8 convicts in the Ramgarh lynching case in Jharkhand with garland stating that the Ranchi High Court has suspended the sentence of the accused and released them on bail.

In a series of a tweet, the Union Minister of State for Civil Aviation said, “In the Ramgarh case (mob lynching), the Ranchi High Court, which is the first court of appeal, has suspended the sentence of the accused and released them on bail while admitting their case. The case will once again be re-heard.”


Sinha further said that he has full faith in our judiciary and that those who are innocent would be spared while the guilty would be appropriately punished.

“I have full faith in our judiciary and rule of law. Unfortunately, irresponsible statements are being made about my actions when all that I am doing is honoring due process of law. Those that are innocent will be spared and guilty will be appropriately punished,” he said.


“I have repeatedly expressed my misgivings about the Fast-Track Court judgement sentencing each accused to life imprisonment. I am pleased that the Hon’ble High Court will hear the matter as a statutory court of appeal to test the correctness of the Fast-Track Court order,” he added.


BJP Lok Sabha MP from Hazaribagh, Jayant Sinha on Friday felicitated eight men who are convicted for killing a meat trader in Jharkhand last year. These convicts were awarded life imprisonment by Ramgarh Court in Alimuddin murder case.
