A city court on Monday sentenced a 60-year-old man and two others to seven years in jail for killing a youth unintentionally and injuring his family members.
Additional Sessions Judge TS Kashyap awarded the jail term after convicting them for committing culpable homicide not amounting to murder.The court held that due to the injuries inflicted by them upon the victim, a “precious life has been extinguished”.
