Death Sentence of Deosthali mother and daughter commuted

The Bombay High Court has commuted the death sentence of Deosthali mother and daughter from Pune who have been convicted for murder of a doctor from Pune.

The Women had conducted their own trial and during the appeal also had argued themselves inspite of the High Court appointing an amicus curae in the matter.

We will try to upload the judgement as soon as it is on the Bombay High Court website.
