No death for Dara Singh in Staines case

Bureau Report
Agence India Press

New Delh: Coming Down heavily on Christian missionaries for indulging in forceful conversions the Supreme Court today dismissed its plea for death penalty to Dara Singh while upholding life imprisonment given to him by the Orissa High Court.The bench of justices P Sathasivam and BS Chauhan observed that there cannot be any justification for interference in someone’s belief while decrying forceful conversions.

The court observed that investigations reveal that Staines was involved in conversions and there are materials to suggest that the missionaries were indulging in forceful conversion in the area.

Dara Singh’s lawyer SS Mishra said that the missionaries were indulging in forceful conversions and his client just wanted to threaten them and not kill Staines.
Staines and his two sons, Philip (10) and Timothy (6) were burnt to death while they were sleeping inside a van outside a church at Manoharpur village in Koenjhar district of Orissa on January 22, 1999 by Dara Singh and Mahendra Hembram.
