Seven persons were sentenced to life on Friday by a court in Mumbai in connection with the kidnap and murder a 14-year-old boy in 2003.
The Sewree sessions court, however, acquitted three other accused in the case, observing that there was no evidence to prove their involvment in the case.
Pronouncing the judgement, the court said that the prosecution had submitted ample evidence to prove that the seven accused entered into a conspiracy to kidnap Raj Agarwal for ransom following which they murdered him and tried to dispose the body in a river.
The teenager was kidnapped in 2003 and killed by the accused, who allegedly threw the body on the banks of Bhima river in Daund near Nashik.
