Devendra Fadnavis Asserts, 'Bilkis Bano Case Accused Released, But Wrong To Felicitate Them'

Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on August 23 stated while the prisoners in the Bilkis Bano case were released following a Supreme Court judgment, it is improper if a person convicted of a crime is "felicitated." On August 15, the Gujarat government released the 11 life-sentenced prisoners. On August 23, SC consented to hear a plea challenging the remission given by the Gujarat government.
