The prime accused
In August 2012, a special court for SIT cases had sentenced 32 people, including former BJP minister Maya Kodnani, to life imprisonment. Kodnani was sentenced to 28 years of imprisonment. Another high-profile accused, former Bajrang Dal leader Babu Bajrangi, was given life imprisonment till death.
She has appealed against her conviction, along with all 31 other convicts – including former Bajrang Dal leader Babu Bajrangi who was awarded life imprisonment with a condition of remission.
