The Bombay high court has reserved the judgment on the bail pleas of seven convicts in the 2002 Bilkis Bano gang-rape case. All the seven were sentenced to life imprisonment by the trial court in 2008 following which they have filed appeals against the verdict and sought bail pending the disposal of appeals.

The high court has already admitted an appeal filed by the Central Bureau of Investigation, seeking death penalty for three of the convicts. The arguments concluded before the division bench of Justices N H Patil and Mridula Bhatkar on Friday.

On March 3, 2002, Bilkis Bano's family was attacked by a mob at Randhikpur village, about 250 kms from Ahmedabad [ Images ], during the post-Godhra riots.
