While there has been no official reaction from India as yet, there is no way that we can turn a blind eye to this development, given the memories of Rajiv Gandhi’s assassination and the growing cult of suicide bombing.
Apropos of the report Manjunath killer sentenced to death (March 27), the court must be commended for this decision. Now criminals will think twice before committing such crimes. Today when the crime graph is growing by the day, such strong punishment is the only answer. Manjunath was innocent. This decision is a consolation to his family.
