In rarest of the rare case where brutality is huge and giving life term of 14 years seems to be less to meet the society’s cry for adequate punishment judiciary spell out life term of 30 years.

In two cases, in one case where the father was accused of raping and killing his 4-year-old daughter and another case where a man was held responsible for killing his girl friend, for killing her when she refused to get their child abort, Supreme court bench of Justice BS Chauhan and FMI Kalifulla set the life of life term of 30 years to both accused.  One judgment came on May8 and other May11.

Since long India has come on way of demolishing the death penalty and give life term imprisonment or life sentences. Sometimes 14 years of imprisonment is not sufficient punishment so increasing that to more years like in these cases is something justified.
