HC Deb 04 August 1891 vol 356 cc1246-7
MR. KEAY (Elgin and Nairn)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for India whether he is aware that, with the exception of a preliminary inquiry, nothing had been done when the last mail left India to bring to justice the persons who murdered Bulwrunt Rao, at Nijain, in the Gwalior territory on 19th May last; and whether the Government of India are taking steps to secure that these persons are speedily put upon their trial, and that full inquiry is made as to the part stated to have been borne by the Maharajah Holkar in instigating the crime?


The Secretary of State has been informed by the Government of India that the Gwalior Durbar has appointed a special Judge, who was shortly expected at Nijain, to try the case. The Government of India is watching the case.
