The Bench was allowing appeals by the accused, who challenged the sentences imposed on them in 2007 by a Special Court, which was set up in Tsundur, a village in Guntur district.

In August 1991, eight Dalits were killed allegedly by persons from non-Dalit farming communities. The Special Court had examined 71 witnesses and convicted 21 persons of life imprisonment and 35 persons were awarded jail sentence of one year.

It said trial in a criminal case was not something like a mathematical exercise where common minimum factors from various numerical could be taken to be put outside a bracket.
