HC Deb 09 July 1906 vol 160 c509

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India whether the natives of India who recently assaulted Mr. Earle, a British planter in the Ranikhet district, and left him for dead, have been brought to justice; and what was the result of the trial of certain natives of India for the murder of Mr. Goss, a British planter, of Darjeeling.


I have no official information as to these cases, but I believe that the first case is still under investigation, and that in the second case an appeal is pending against the sentence of transportation for life which was passed on a servant of the deceased who was convicted of the murder.
