August 31, 2006 15:36 IST
A bench comprising Justices K G Balakrishnan and G P Mathur dismissed appeals by sisters against a judgement of the Bombay High Court confirming the death sentence awarded by the trial court.
The bench also vacated the stay granted against the execution of both the convicts during the pendency of their appeals.
Renuka Bai alias Rinku and her sister were tried along with their mother for stealing and chain snatching during the period 1994-1996.
Their mother, however, passed away during the trial of this case.
