Gaya (Bihar): A District and Sessions Court on Wednesday awarded capital punishment to three naxalites in the Bara massacre case.

Three others were acquitted in the case of the killing of 35 upper caste Bhumihars 17 years ago here.

Vyas Kahar, Naresh Paswan and Yugal Mochi were found guilty by district and sessions judge Daroga Prasad.

The court acquitted Tyagi Mahto, Vijay Yadav and Madhusudan Sharma, saying the prosecution had failed to establish the charge. — PTI
