THE SENSATIONAL IOC sales executive S. Manjunath murder case trial started in the court of district and sessions judge here today.

Before the start of the trial, the accused created a ruckus on the court premises when they were brought from jail. They expressed anger at mediapersons and refused to get down from the jail van and hurled abuses at them.

They were finally produced before the court only after police forcibly took them in.

Meanwhile, two representatives of the Manjunath Shanmugam Trust (MST) arrived in Kheri to keep themselves abreast with the proceedings. During the proceedings, the prosecution produced two key witnesses, head constable Ram Bhuvan and constable Asha Ram of Maholi (Sitapur) police before the court.

These cops had arrested the accused while they were trying to disposed of the body of the IOC executive in Maholi. The trial would continue on Tuesday and Wednesday, during which the prosecution would produce more witnesses.

A senior HC advocate IB Singh, assisting the prosecution, said they had evidences against the accused, concrete enough to get all eight of them convicted.  Jitendra Pal Upadhyay, a senior advocate, deployed by IOC to assist the prosecution, also termed the evidences as ‘solid.’ Meanwhile, defence advocates VD Pandey and Awadhesh Singh termed the evidences as forged and concocted.
