Judges are “vulnerable” to murderous assaults for their verdicts which always go against one of the parties in a case, a Delhi court has said while awarding 10-year jail term to three convicts for assaulting three trial court judges in a road rage case here in 2012.

The incident has “shaken the conscience” of the society and sends a message that “nobody is safe”, the court said.

Expressing concern over the safety of judicial officers who are mostly without any security cover, Additional Sessions Judge R K Tripathi handed down the 10-year rigorous jail term to the three for attempting to murder the judges by hurling bricks at their official car in a South Delhi locality.

The attackers had forced the judges to come out of an official car and severely assaulted them.

While sending Anil Raj, Prashant and Rohit to jail for ten years and imposing fines, the court asserted that stringent punishment was must and the “unscrupulous” convicts cannot be forgiven in any manner as their act was “deliberate” and “intentional”.
