Patna : A Bihar court Thursday sentenced nine Ranvir Sena members to life imprisonment for the massacre of 34 people in 2000.

Aurangabad Additional District Judge Krishna Kant Dwivedi passed the sentence after finding them guilty of the massacre. Two other accused in the case were acquitted for want of adequate evidence.

According to the police, 34 people belonging mostly to the backward castes and dalits, including nine children and 13 women, were killed and 15 others injured by the armed men on June 16 2000.

Ranvir Sena, private militia of the landed upper caste, claimed responsibility of the massacre a day after the incident.

Miyanpur is an inaccessible backward village, barely 10 km from Senari village where the Maoists killed 34 upper caste villagers in 1999.
