The seriousness of the crimes increased as there were committed with the assistance and involvement of foreign powers and designated terrorists.
New Delhi, May 26: Kashmiri separatist Yasin Malik was sentenced to life imprisonment in connection with a terror funding case. Malik had pleaded guilty before a special NIA court, following which he was sentenced to life imprisonment.
The special court judge, Praveen Singh made several observations before sentencing Malik to life. Here are five observations made by the judge.
Yasin Malik cannot invoke the Mahatma because unlike Malik, who continued to engage in violence despite giving up the gun, Gandhi called off the entire non-cooperation movement after one incident of violence at Chauri Chara.
