9 Hindu Vahini accused freed in ‘2008 Bhainsa riot case’ where a Muslim family burnt alive

ADILABAD: Adilabad District Sessions Court on Monday dismissed the sensational Bhainsa case in connection with the burning of six members of a Muslim family in Vatoli village of Adilabad district.

According to Deccan Chronicle, judge Aruna Sarika quashed the case against the nine accused, all members of Hindu Vahini due to lack of proper technical and scientific evidence produced by the CB CID.

The horrific and brutal incident wherein a whole Muslim family of six members, including three children, were burned alive took place in the Vatoli village in Bhainsa Mandal on October 11 night, 2008 had shocked the state and the nation.

Following the ghastly incident, communal tension erupted and prohibitory orders were also imposed in Bhainsa town and its surrounding areas for a few days.

The CB CID sleuths arrested Jadhav Vinayak Rao, Kunchelwar Nagnath and Shinde Digambar, Kunchel-war Chandrabhanu, Jadhav Vi-nod, Adabagi Chandrakanth, Jadhav Avadooth, Jadhv Baga-vathrao and Suryavamshi Raman, all residents of Vatoli village for their role in the conspiracy and execution.

There have been a series of hearings into that horrendous case in the District Additional Court since 2016 and finally the accused go scot free.

One of the family members, Imran, expressed shock at the judgement. “We waited for 10 years for justice. We had also demanded for a CBI inquiry into the incident but only the CBCID and state police conducted an inquiry into the incident.” He said they will approach High Court against the judgement.
