A Gurgaon fast track court on Tuesday awarded the fourth life sentence to members of the notorious Maxi Cab serial killer gang for yet another murder.

Tuesday's verdict was in connection with the murder of an unknown person whom the gang had offered a lift at Hero Honda Crossing in Gurgaon Expressway in October 2006.

They later killed him and snatched Rs 400 from him.

The man's body was found in bushes along the Expressway on October 27, 2006.

Facing trial in 22 murder cases, nine members of the gang were earlier awarded life sentences in three cases and 10 years jail term in one more case. They were acquitted in two cases.

The police busted the gang after getting a clue from the murder of Ashish Bhagoria (23) —an MBA from Gwalior whose decomposed body was recovered from a gutter in Sector 29 in November 2006.

Bhagoria was the last victim of the gang. Their victims included MNC executive Sachin Jain.

Additional sessions judge BL Singhal announced rigorous imprisonment for life to Parmod alias Bhutan, Ravi Kumar, Mukesh, Daal Chand alias Danny and Rohtash.

On November 6, 2006, the police busted this gang of nine vagabonds (all 18-32 years) of Bhora Kalan village on NH-8.

The police said the killers allegedly disclosed that they had killed about 26-28 people (as they did not remember the exact number) during 2005-06.
