    as it would not warrwnt death penalty

    In the hands of an astute public prosecutor, with several death penalties under his belt but without any credentials for conducting rape trials with dignity and sensitivity, the trial that started off as the first and the most high profile was turned into a “subsequent case”, and the subsequent one transformed itself into the first. The trials went on parallelly, and convictions were pronounced within minutes of each other. But the design of pronouncing the convictions provided scope for entertaining an application to add the additional charge under Section 376E, warranting death penalty, at this late stage." Logically, the case that was registered first and the trial that commenced prior in time ought to have concluded first. But that was not to be, as it would not warrant a death penalty. Hence, the second case is rendered a mere prop for the first."

    What does the writer want to conclude?

    What does the writer want to conclude? The first trial should have finished before the second one. As it was, the second trial provided reason to ask for the death penalty in the first trial. There was no legal reason to ask for the death penalty until the second case ended. It seems that the convictions meted out in the second case provided sufficient reason to request the death penalty in the first trial. Whether the writer is correct in what he wrote depends on Indian law.
