Life sentences for India policemen

Ten Delhi policemen are jailed for killing two businessmen in fake encounter.


    Prosecutors had demanded the death sentence.

    The trial has garnered attention in India where there has been a growing number of cases of police killing unarmed suspects or innocent people, or faking shootouts, in a bid to earn promotions and rewards.

    Critics say the killings are consequences of a poorly trained and corrupt police force, that is in collusion with dirty politicians.
