A city court on Monday sentenced a 60-year-old man and two others to seven years in jail for killing a youth unintentionally and injuring his family members.


Additional Sessions Judge TS Kashyap awarded the jail term after convicting them for committing culpable homicide not amounting to murder.The court held that due to the injuries inflicted by them upon the victim, a “precious life has been extinguished”.

Complainant’s counsel NK Singh Bhadauria and Manish Bhadauria told the court that the three accused had forcibly entered victim Manish’s house at Ghonda in North East Delhi.

The accused then attacked Manish, his father and brother with hockey sticks after a quarrel between two parties in May 2008. The  injured were taken to the hospital where Manish died while his father Mangal Singh and brother Nitish were discharged after treatment.

The court also imposed a fine of Rs. 5,000 each on three convicts — Dhara Singh, 60, Brij Mohan, 50, and latter’s son Dilawar Singh, 23.It rejected their leniency plea saying , “It will give a wrong message to the society.”
