The opposition has, however, questioned why it took so long for the police to place the charge sheet and why it failed to get evidence against the two who were acquitted by the court.
"When Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee visited Kamduni in 2013 after the incident, she had promised that the culprits will be arrested and punished. Today six accused have been convicted. The conviction itself has proved that the police administration has worked impartially in this case to get the culprits booked for the crime" said Jyotipriyo Mullick, state Food Minister.
A city court today pronounced six accused in the Kamduni gangrape and murder case guilty, while two others were acquitted.
The CPI(M) and Congress questioned what took so long for the police to find evidence against the culprits.

"What took so long for the police to book those criminals? If police had acted impartially then the two who were acquitted could have also been booked", said CPI(M) Politburo member Mohammed Salim.
