BANGALORE: The Karnataka High Court on Tuesday admitted two appeals by the State Government against the acquittal by a lower court of 32 persons allegedly involved in the Kambalpalli massacre in which seven Dalits were burnt alive.

A Division Bench comprising Justice Manjula Chellur and Justice N. Ananda heard the State Public Prosecutor and called for records from the lower court.

He said the appeal was for a retrial in the case because several witnesses had turned hostile. According to the prosecution, seven Dalits who were burnt to death at Kambalapalli in March 2000. This incident was believed to be a reprisal for the murder of Krishnappa Reddy, a village functionary. The Bench adjourned hearing on the matter.
