Confirmation Case to be heard on video conferencing of accused

A division bench of the Bombay High Court is about to begin the hearing the confirmation case wherein the Sessions Court had given death sentence to Nihal Raish Sheikh (30) and Rafique Mohammad Unni Jan Sayyed (27) for the offence of kidnapping and murder. On 23.10.2012 the Court passed an order asking the home department to make arrangements for video conferencing in the court as the Accused No.1 could not attend the court. The doctor from Arthur Road Jail had advised the accused no.1 to be not moved out of jail due to his health conditions. This is the third case after the case of Kasab and the Gateway of India blast case that the confirmation case would be held on video conferencing. The hearing of the case is likely to start on 29.10.2012. Confirmation Case No. 2 of 2011 along with Appeal No. 764 of 2012.

  1. That's a very good solution for good protection and for comfortable communication from their own places. Implementing Video Conferencing Software as a technology for better collaboration and for the growth and development of any business or organization is a key benefit which makes a easy work compared to the past.
