Death penalty: Praveen from Puttur awaits President's decision on mercy plea

Death penalty: Praveen from Puttur awaits President's decision on mercy plea

Daijiworld Media Network - Puttur

Puttur, Feb 15: Those who remember the barbaric killing of four members of a family in Vamnjoor way back in 1994 may well be aware of the name of Praveen Kumar Sappaliga from Puttur, who was sentenced to death for the heinous crime.

Praveen Kumar had brutally murdered four persons of a family, including three women, in Vamanjoor on the night of February 23-24, 1994. The victims were Appi Sherigarthy, her daughter Shakunthala, granddaughter Deepika and Appi Sherigarthy’s son Govinda. The Mangalore sessions court had convicted Praveen Kumar and awarded him death sentence in the year 2002 and the Karnataka high court had upheld the death penalty on October 28, 2003.

Praveen applied for mercy petition with the President of India in the year 2005, but the decision has not been taken so far.

However, two high profile hangings of Ajmal Kasab and Afzal Guru within a span of three months have sent shivers among convicts in several central jails of states whose mercy petitions are pending before the President.

Pranab Mukherjee made headlines after approving the death penalty for Pakistan terrorist Kasab as well as Indian parliament attack convict Afzal Guru.

Praveen Kumar Sappaliga from Periadka, Puttur along with 8 other convicts are in Belgaum's famous Hindalga jail since 2005.

The petitions of the nine inmates of Hindalga jail who are facing death penalties have now reached the union home ministry, which is expected to send the file to president Pranab Mukerjee in a few days.

If the mercy plea is granted, all the inmates will be spending their lives in Hindalga jail. If not, they will meet the same fate as Kasab and Guru.

It may be recalled that Pranab Mukherjee recently rejected the mercy plea of four Veerappan aides who were invloved in Palar bombing which killed 22 people. These four criminals are also in Belgaum's Hindalga jail.

Four aides of slain forest brigand Veerappan - Simon (son of Anthonyappa), Bilavendran (son of Marrisgouda), Gyanprakash (son of Joseph from Kollegal in Chamarajanagar district) and Madaiah alias Meesekar from Mettur in Tamil Nadu filed their mercy pleas on February 12, 2004. Shivu (son of Munishetty) and Jadeswamy (son of Rangashetty) from Kollegal in Chamarajanagar district submitted their petitions on February 28, 2007.

The Hindalga prison is the only one in the state that has the facility for hanging those on the death row. The last execution was carried out in the prison in November 1983, when murder convict Hanumanth was hanged. Official sources said the prison here houses 60 death sentence convicts and nine of them (including Natikar) had filed mercy petitions before the President. The appeals of the others are pending in the Supreme Court and the High Court of Karnataka.

"I am ready to forgive anyone who does it to me or my dear-once" - Nagraj..

Nagraj, your quote appears good only on paper. In reality, it has no worth. What forgiveness you are talking about? These guys rape, kill and loot..do they deserve any mercy? What about those who have been raped/looted/killed by these criminals? It is very easy to preach but in real life it is not so easy. If these criminals are given mercy, do you take the guarantee that they won't do the same crime again?

Feeding food for these creatures keeping them in Jail is country's big mistakes. President please clear all backlogs.. Clear all books.. Where is Cyanide Mohan who killed 20 innocent womens.. why feeding them on cost of tax payers money. All these criminals are threat to human kind.. Finish them .. Use this money for feeding the poor in country who still struggle for one time food.

Its too late now....
he must be sorry for his sins... he must not be given death sentence...
Life in prison is the best way to deal with such people...
who has the right to kill?
If killing is the answer then whats the difference between Taliban killing n Indian govt?
Indian President has already hanged 2 people? Don't you think in someway he becomes the murderer and you all for supporting it???

Forgiveness must be the answer always...
Anyone can kill the body but no one can kill the soul....
I am ready to forgive anyone who does it to me or my dear-once

All the convicts who are on death row should be uted and wipe them off from Indian soil. Thereby we can save the additional burden of jail authorities.

Dear all... in my opinion you all are the murderers..because of your comments... someone said rightly "DO NOT KILL THE OFFENDERS. KILL THEIR OFFENSE" what is the difference between you guys and Praveen...

Saturday, February 16, 2013

what a pathetic state of affairs. A person has spent almost 19 years of his life in the prison. He has completed his life term imprisonment. How can he be offered two convictions at a time, Either he has to be released now or should have been hung a long time ago. "Is this not a case of Justice delaid is justice denied." ?

"DO NOT KILL THE OFFENDERS. KILL THEIR OFFENCE"


"EVERY CRIMINAL IS A CRIMINAL ONLY IN A SITUATION THAT FORCES HIM TO ACT SO. IF SITUATION ISN'T FORCE, THEN NEVER BE HE/SHE A CRIMINAL"


"THOSE WHO LIFT THE SWORD(KILL) WILL BE KILLED BY A SWORD"


"FORGIVE AND YOU WILL BE FORGIVEN"


"STOP TAKING OUT A LITTLE BLOCK OUT OF YOUR BROTHER'S EYE WHEN YOU'VE BIG BLOCK IN YOUR OWN EYE"

"PRACTICE BEFORE YOU PREACH TO THE WHOLE WORLD"

"MEND THE OFFENSIVE BEHAVIOUR OF SOMEONE THROUGH REWARD AND PUNISHMENT BASIS"

"STRICTLY IMPLEMENT THE LAW OF BLOOD MONEY IF ANYONE KILLS THE OTHER REGARDLESS OF GENDER"

"DO NOT HAVE EXORDINARY OR FUNNY AMENDMENTS OF SEPERATE RIGHTS FOR WOMEN AND SEPERATE LAWS FOR MEN" EXAMPLE: THE 4 SEATS BEHIND THE DRIVER ARE FOR LADIES (IN THE BUS) WHAT IF ALL THE OTHER SEATS IN THE BUS ARE OCCUPIED BY ONLY LADIES, MAN WILL SIT ON HEADS OF LADIES OR VICEVERSA??

MOREOVER, THOSE WHO REJECT THE MERCY PLEA AND THOSE PASS THE VERDICT TO HANG SOME CULPRIT DOESN'T MEAN THAT THEY ARE THE CHILDREN OF HEAVENLY ANGELS OR THEY ARE IN THEIR UNIFORMS AND CAN'T BE UTED. THEY COMMIT OFFENCES ALMOST EVERYDAY AND EVERY MINUTE BY THE VERY WAY OF THEIR THOUGHTS AND JUDGEMENTS. THEY ARE IN A HUNT AS TO WHOM TO SPARE AND WHOM TO SAVE. WHERE ARE ALL THOSE SO CALLED JUDGES, LAWYERS, POLICE, CIVIL WORKERS OR GOVERMENT WORKERS OR POLITICANS OR PEOPLES' REPRESENTATIVES WHO WORK UNDER THE BANNER OF "GOVERNMENT'S WORK IS GOD'S WORK" ??? ARE THEY REALLY DOING THEIR WORK WITH GOD'S FEAR... WE INNOCENT CITIZENS CAN NEVER BUY THAT TRUTH FROM ANY ANGLE. IT'S BECAUSE OF THESE MEN IN UNIFORM INDIA STILL DOESN'T SHINE. STOP BEING DIPLOMATIC, POLITICAL AND COMMUNAL IN YOUR JUDGEMENTS YOU WILL KNOW WHOM TO HANG AND WHOM TO SPARE. MAY BE EVEN THOSE WHO DO THE UTION MAY REQUIRE A UTION FIRST FOR THEMSELVES IF I'M RIGHT SO FAR.

MAY WE INDIANS BE ENLIGHTENED TO EVERY WAKE OF OUR JUDGEMENTS AS HUMANS...!!!

Dear people actaually many murderers,rapists are ready to die.But they themselves don't know what Indian Government is doing all these years with their poor paper work.When they are hanging 2-3 people there are still hundreds of them in waiting list and interestingly the number is increasing.

mercy should apply only for person who kill for self defence.

Rapist, torture for dowry, third party murder - should be hanged or removed all the body part and give to needy ones.

This Criminal hasbeen a Role model for many Deadly would be Criminals .I have heard in some angry Conversations people just say I will do a Vamanjoor type assault on you .Hence the Govt should show what fate the Criminals will get and hence should be hanged without any Delay .But my worry is why the previous president gave Mercy to many Criminals including those of Rapes and Murders

Anitha D'souza, Pangla/Shankerpura

All those criminals, who have committed first degree murders, that too in the intend to Killing do not have the right to live. President should immidetly clear all the files not heeding to human rights plea. accidentel deaths or not intention to murder cases can be considered fro retrial.

Not that the wannabe murderers would change because of this atleast public money is saved from feeding these not-wanteds in the civilised society, jail can be more spacious to accomodate politicians if in case we have a strong anti-curroption law somewere down the line.

Praveen has to die no sympathy.In fact, as a last resort sending mercy petition of Murder Convict to the President should be reviewed taking cognizance of crimes @ present especially against women folks(rape and rape and murder)If SC convicts the accused then,why these cases are to refer President for mercy plea?I think Murders has to die and that also SC awards death penalty for rarest of rare

Dinesh Poojary, Kundapura/Bengaluru

Along with him, also hang PJ Kurien. No mercy for these scoundrels please.

When they have no mercy on others, why are they seeking mercy now?
