A court on Friday sentenced two persons to life imprisonment for the murder of a local journalist last year.

Additional Sessions Judge T G Bansod found Aaga Khan alias Harun Khan (37) and Feroz Khan alias Gulam Mushtafa Khan (47) guilty of murdering Farooq Bali.

Bali, editor of the daily `Samzo', was killed on February 17, 2009. The incident was result of a quarrel between the duo and the scribe.

The Judge also slapped a fine of Rs 5,000 each on the convicts. Two other accused were handed down two-year jail term for destroying evidence.
