Bilkis Bano gang rape case: Give Rs 50 lakh compensation to 2002 riots victim: SC to Gujarat govt



New Delhi: The Supreme Court has directed the Gujarat government to give Rs 50 lakh as compensation, a job and accommodation to Bilkis Bano, who was gang raped during the 2002 riots in the state. 

A pregnant Bilkis Bano was gangraped on March 3, 2002, in Randhikpur village, while fleeing the violence in the aftermath of the Godhra train burning in Gujarat. Fourteen members of her family were killed. The youngest of them was Bilkis Bano's three-year-old daughter Saleha, whose head was smashed with a rock.

A bench headed by Chief Justice Rajan Gogoi was informed by the Gujarat government that it has taken action against police officers involved in the case, blocking the pension of four and demoting a fifth.

Turning down the state government's offer of Rs. 5 lakh, Bilkis Bano had sought exemplary compensation and action against the police officers who tried to derail the investigation and were convicted by the Bombay High Court.

A special court had on January 21, 2008 convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment 11 men for raping Bano and murdering seven of her family members in the aftermath of the Godhra riots, while acquitting seven persons including the policemen and doctors.

The Bombay high court upheld the life sentence given by a trial court to 11 convicted in the Bilkis Bano gangrape and murder case from the 2002 Godhra riots. In addition, the court set aside the acquittal of others accused in the case, including Gujarat police officers and doctors from a government hospital. Five police personnel and two doctors were found guilty of dereliction of duty and evidence tampering.
