Indian Judge says 2 years punishment for killing man but 14 years for killing a cow


Indian Judge has sentenced the son of an industrialist to two years’ imprisonment on Saturday for mowing down a motorcyclist with his luxury BMW car in 2008, reported Hindustan Times.

The judge observed how present-day laws provide more strict and stringent punishment to perpetrators of cattle-related crimes than drivers who take human lives.

“The sentence for killing a cow is five, seven or 14 years in different states, but the sentence for causing the death of a human being through rash or negligent driving is only two years,” additional sessions judge Sanjeev Kumar said.
