Supreme Court Verdict Takes Wicket of First Convicted Member of Parliament Masood

Supreme Court Verdict Takes Wicket of First Convicted Member of Parliament Masood

2 Months back Honorable Supreme Court of India struck down a law that provided immunity to MPs and MLAs from immediate disqualification even they were found guilty by the court.

CBI Court found Masood guilty in a medical scam

Medical Scam - involved pushing ineligible candidates in 1990-91 to medical college seats allotted to Tripura from the central pool, depriving more deserving candidates

A special CBI court on Thursday held Congress Rajya Sabha member Rasheed Masood guilty
of offences under the Prevention of Corruption Act and IPC Sections 120-B (criminal conspiracy), 420 (cheating) and 468 (forgery).

The provisions under which Masood has been convicted attract imprisonment up to seven years.

The three cases in which the Congress leader has been convicted form part of the eleven similar cases registered by CBI in 1996.

Congress member in Rajya Sabha and a party working committee member Masood's conviction is the first case after the July 10 Supreme Court judgment that struck down subsection 4 of Section 8 of Representation of the People Act, under which incumbent MPs and MLAs can avoid disqualification till pendency of the appeal against conviction

Nine students who had fraudulently got admission in the medical colleges have also been convicted for cheating.
Two of them, including Masood's nephew, were juvenile at the time of the offence and their case had been transferred to the juvenile justice board on January 25, 2007.

Masood had between 1989-91 illegally and fraudulently, in conspiracy with the then resident commissioner of Tripura, Gurdial Singh nominated his nephew and one other and Sachidanand Dwivedi to seats allocated from central pool for students of Tripura.

Crime Happened Year - 1991

Got Punishment Year – 2013

Mr. Masood enjoyed royal life for 22 years taxpayers’ money he enjoyed as MP

Do you think now as he is found guilty his 100% properties should be declared as national confiscated by government of India?

Today Masood is 66 years old; when crime happened he was 44 years old, young, and healthy who can enjoy all types of apples and mangoes

Two big accused persons namely chief minister of Tripura Sudhir Ranjan Majumdar and then health minister of the state, Kashi Ram Reang in this case died before the judgement
