Dhananjay Chatterjee, who is to be executed before dawn Saturday, has been on death row since his 1991 conviction for raping and smothering a 14-year-old girl, Hetal Parekh, who lived in the apartment building where he worked as a security guard.

Exactly why is this sad? A scumbag is being skimmed out of the gene pool. Hooray for India.

Because of circumstantial evidence.

I'm not sure I follow you, SMH. Can you elaborate?

Chatterjee's conviction was based on circumstantial evidence. He fled and the victim's watch was found in his native village. Witnesses testified they saw him on the day of the murder go up to the apartment where Hetal lived, after school when her parents were away.

No DNA testing was available in India in 1991, but when it became possible later to do such tests, courts rejected the petition of Chatterjee's lawyers.


If he's guilty, then he should die in the most painful way possible, but what if he isn't?

If you ever spend any amount of time in courts where criminal cases are being tried, most evidence IS circumstantial, and not solid. Just because evidence is circumstantial doesn't mean it's invalidated.

T, is there a T in it?

They should at least do the DNA test to be sure and then soap that rope.

Huh? That's scary. I'm glad I don't live in India.

So because he was in her apartment and her watch was found in his town he should be hanged? Sorry, but you DO have to make some kind of case.

So it was Mr. Chatterjee, in the town, with the circumstantial evidence.
 
2004-08-14 04:35:45 AM
Hey, at least he had a better chance than the guy that was stabbed to death by 14 angry village women (and their kids!) in the courtroom. That dude wasn't even convicted yet.

Gotta love Indian justice.

Well, they've got the right guy. A few hundred or thousand miles east or west and they would be punishing the 14-year old girl for being "dishonored."

Sharia. Check it out. Even after ritual female genital mutilation (sewing up the, uh, cooter ... snipping off the clitoris), looks like rape is still possible and punishable ... for the rapee.

Never moving to india, never going to india. One more of my plans on living a long life. On the other hand why does he deserve a special death, what makes his crime so much more evil than those of the other psychos in his country that he deserves to have his neck snapped. That just sounds mean for the sake of being nasty to someone and that's not a trait you want to see in your judges.

Wow. I'm sure some people have been murdered here in England in the past 10 years. Hope that whoever it was didn't leave a watch within a 20 mile radius of my house, otherwise the Indian police will be kicking in my door, I expect.

Why ripe bananas ? It'll just attract the fruit flies you know.

This is why it's sad:

No DNA testing was available in India in 1991, but
when it became possible later to do such tests,
courts rejected the petition of Chatterjee's lawyers.


"The president has been unfair and unjust in rejecting my
son's appeal," Chatterjee's 78-year-old father, Banshidhar
Chatterjee, told reporters this week. "I don't understand
how the president could do this to a poor man's son."

The case has raised objections from human rights groups and
intellectuals in West Bengal state.


If there's any chance of exonerating the man at all,
do the tests and be sure.

"They said you was hung..."

"And dey wuz right."
 
2004-08-14 05:12:35 AM
Thats how thier system works. Dont like it? Run for President of India and change the laws.

Until then, Hang'em High!

Maybe the USA will invade and remove the evil dictatorship that is brutally murdering their own people (with banana lubricated rope - "it rubs the banana on the rope, or it gets the hose again"). Oh, wait a minute, I don't think India has much in the way of oil reserves (apart from banana oil - for rope oiling activities), so they probably won't.

If they've got enough soap that they can waste it on lubricating rope, why don't they have enough to wash themselves ? Oh sorry, that's the French I'm thinking of.

I'll stop rambling now.
 
2004-08-14 07:17:03 AM
Why the fark does this have the 'spiffy' tag? They're hanging a probably-innocent man.
 
2004-08-14 07:36:59 AM
Because the person who submitted the tag probably has a family and is massively overreacting with the belief that it's better to be safe than risk lettng a dirty man out on the streets. Perhaps I am cynical, but read half the posts here and you'll sympathize.
 
2004-08-14 08:29:31 AM
Feh, now they are outsourcing executioner jobs.

Farking Bush!
 
2004-08-14 10:18:09 AM
late..but meh!
anyway - im Indian, am aware of the case: has admitted to guilt, has even said his crime wasnt that big a deal to warrant the first hanging in the WHOLE of India in 15 years.

Nothing But Net

The Hangin' Song from Ren & Stimpy's "Out West"

C'mon everbody! Let's have a hoedown!

Oh, Lord loves a hangin'.
That's why He gave us necks.
It tightens up our vocal cords
And loosens up our pecs.

So if you are a horse theif
And guilty to the bone,
Go ahead and blame a friend
And you won't hang alone.

It may be hard to swaller,
But you'll be three feet taller.
It's a dandy way to entertain your friends.

You say you are a villain,
But can't abide by killin';
Go ahead a steal yourself a horse.

Oh, Lord loves a hangin'.
And so do we, by heck;
So get yerself a lasso
And decorate your neck.

Oh, we is awful ignorant
And uglier 'n sin;
So go ahead 'n cut us down
And hang us all again,

Hangin' that is. Swing a spell...

Corrollary: Al Qaeda works by murdering thousands of Americans in terrorist attacks. Don't like it? Then run for leader of Al Qaeda. Until then, hijack away!

/Trying to guess if Ron enjoyed 9/11 or is working on his Al Qaeda presidential campaign...

Sorry, SMH. I seriously did read the article, but somehow my feeble mind missed that part. I see your point.
 
2004-08-14 11:24:16 AM
How many of you haven't waxed your rope with soap and ripe bananas? Sounds like a fun Friday night date.
