Supreme Court did not confirm single death sentence in 2021; commuted sentence of 5, acquitted 4

It adjudicated on the death sentences of 9 prisoners, of whom 5 had their death sentences commuted to life imprisonment while 4 were acquitted of all charges.

Pertinently, the report noted that the top court under the leadership of Chief Justice of India NV Ramana prioritised death sentence matters, after hybrid hearings resumed in the Court in September 2021.

The Court listed 40 death sentence matters to be heard on priority before 4 benches. Between September-December 2021, 3 benches of the Supreme Court heard arguments in 14 cases (17 prisoners) and delivered judgments in 5 of those.
