Gaya: A Bihar court on Saturday acquitted 24
people, accused in the case of Khagaribigha and Jawahirbigha
carnage in which 12 Dalits were shot dead.

Additional District and Sessions Judge K N Rai acquitted
them of all the charges for want of sufficient evidence to
proceed with the trial.

Twelve dalits were shot dead by activists of Ranvir Sena,
an outfit of landlords, at Khagaribigha and Jawahirbigha in
the district on April 11, 1999 during the erstwhile RJD rule.
