Facing intense criticism  over felicitating eight Ramgarh lynching case convicts, Union minister Jayant Sinha has expressed regret.

“If by garlanding them, an impression has gone out that I support such vigilantism, then I express regret,” he told reporters.

“I have said many times that the matter is still sub-judice. It won’t be fair to talk on this. Law will take its own course. We have always worked towards punishing the guilty and sparing the innocent,” he said.

 The Minister for State of Civil Aviation had stoked a controversy by felicitating the eight convicts after they came out of prison on bail.

Trader Alimuddin Ansari was beaten to death on June 29 last year by a mob on the suspicion that he was carrying beef.
