New Delhi, Mon, 01 Jun 2009 ANI

New Delhi, June 1(ANI): The Supreme Court on Monday came out with a stong verdict that, those who burn women to death for dowry should be hanged and no mercy should be shown to them.


"You have burnt a woman to death by pouring kerosene. How can you do such a barbaric act? It is an uncivilised act. You should be hanged for the crime," a vacation Bench of Justices Markandeya Katju and Justice Deepak Verma observed.


A spurt in the number of dowry cases in which husbands and in-laws burn women to death are regularly reported from various parts of the country.


"In India hundreds of innocent women are being burnt to death. It is an uncivilised act, how can we do it? We should hang such persons," the apex court observed.


The apex court passed the observation while referring to Mahender Kumar Gulati, a convict in a bride burning case who has been refused bail.


Gulati's wife, Rajani, in her dying declaration had accused her husband, his elder brother Prem Kumar Gulati and sister in-law Rajani of constantly harassing her and then setting her ablaze after pouring kerosene over her at their house in Haryana's Bhiwani district. (ANI)
