A 33-year-old man has been sentenced to 20 years in jail for murdering a gardener and robbing him of his mobile phone and money, with a Delhi court terming it as a rare case that resulted in conviction only on "electronic evidence".


While sentencing Mohinder Sharma to 20 years in jail, Additional Sessions Judge Kamini Lau said that the state would not grant any remission to the convict and not release him before he actually serves 20 years in jail.

Sharma, involved in 15 other criminal cases, had murdered Vadivale, a gardened with the Delhi Development Authority in May, 2009, when the victim was returning home at Shakurpur and robbed him of his mobile and some cash.
