Man sentenced for life for murder

The additional district and sessions judge, KK Kareer, on Saturday awarded life sentence to a Colony Number 4 resident after holding him guilty for murder, nearly eight years after he was booked.

The court also imposed a fine of Rs 25,000 on the convict, Sunil.

On June 18, 2007, another Colony 4 resident, Kamalesh, had died while his brother, Mahipal, was injured during a clash with Sunil and his family members.

The duo had put up a cart for selling goods outside Sunil's house. Mahipal lodged a complaint with the police, saying the clash took place after the family accused them of pelting their house with stones.

An initial argument, he added, turned clumsy following which the accused attacked them with sticks and rods, allegedly killing Kamlesh.

Sunil had absconded when his father, Balikaran, brother Anil, and uncle Hariharan were convicted for the killing last year. His mother, Shanti, and a relative were, however, acquitted by the court.
