Underworld don Babloo Shrivastava and a Mumbai-based businessman were on Monday sentenced to life imprisonment by a local court for hatching a conspiracy to kill a Delhi businessman nearly 14-years ago.
Earlier, a city court convicted underworld don Babloo Shrivastava and a Mumbai-based trader for the murder of Lalit Suneja, a businessman in the capital, 14 years ago.
Additional Sessions Judge of a fast track court, Rajender Kumar, held Shrivastava and Nitin Shah guilty under Sec 120B (criminal conspiracy) and 302 (murder) of the IPC for the murder of Suneja.
According to prosecution, Shah and Shrivastava had hired two persons - Manjit Singh and Virender Pant - for eliminating Suneja, who had some financial disputes with Shah.
However, the court acquitted Manjit Singh for want of evidence. Pant died during the course of the trial.
Suneja was murdered on August 2, 1992 in Shakkarpur area of East Delhi.
