“We have minutely considered and gone through the entire evidence on record, as it is a case of Capital Punishment and Death Penalty. The crime is committed with extremist brutality and the collective conscious of the society would be shocked. All the family members were done to death in a diabolical and dastardly manner. We are of the opinion that there is no alternative punishment suitable, except the Death Sentence.”
– Hon’ble Justice M.R. Shah, Khushwinder Singh v. State of Punjab, [Criminal Appeal Nos. 1433-1434 of 2014].
