Additional district and sessions judge Dilbagh Singh Johal on Tuesday awarded life term to four persons after holding them guilty of killing an SAS Nagar resident.

The convicts have been identified as Babu Ram (65), his sons Raj Kumar alias Rinku (36) and Ramesh Kumar (35), residents of Kharar; and his son-in-law Satish Kumar (40), a native of Ambala.
On June 21, 2013, Sanjeev Kumar ( 32) was shot dead while his brother Vijay Kumar sustained bullet injuries. The firing had sent shock waves in the area.

The victims, who ran a karyana shop in the Kharar market on the Kharar-Landran road in SAS Nagar, were attacked by the convicts who ran a telecom goods shop just opposite to their store. Sanjeev was killed on the spot after he was hit by a bullet in his chest, while Vijay sustained injuries in his arms. The duo was rushed to the civil hospital in Kharar, where Sanjeev was declared brought dead.

A dispute over the payment of money by the two brothers was reported to be the reason behind the crime.
The police had registered a case under sections 302 (murder) and 307 (attempt to murder) of the Indian Penal Code against the four.

The court observed that the recovery of two empty cartridges, which had been fired from the .32 bore revolver of Babu Ram, left no space for doubt regarding firing of two gunshots by him.
