May 19, 2005 11:06 IST
Gladys Staines, wife of slain Australian Missionary Graham Stuart Staines, offered no comments on the setting aside of the death sentence awarded to Dara Singh, the prime accused in the case.
"No comments for today. I have already said what I wanted to say earlier," Gladys said over phone from Townsville, Australia.
Gladys, who was awarded the Padmashri recently for social service, had earlier said that she had forgiven the killers of her husband and two minor sons.
Graham Staines, who ran a leprosy home at Baripada in Mayurbhanj district, and his two sons Philip (11) and Timothy
(8) were asleep in their station wagon at Manoharpur village in Keonjhar district on the night of January 22, 1999 when a crowd surrounded them and set the vehicle ablaze killing all three.
