A sessions court on Thursday sentenced a 42-year-old man to five years rigorous imprisonment for assaulting a 28-year-old man in 2012, leading to his death a day later.

The incident took place on July 23, 2012, when Sanjay Apandekar, 28, Vasant Kamble, 42, and complainant Ramesh Koli were at Mahatma Phule Nagar on Gorai Road in Borivli (West).

Kamble worked for Vinayak Salve,54, a money lender. Salve had lent Rs70,000 to Apandekar through Kamble, but the former was unable to return the money.

Kamble allegedly assaulted Apandekar over repaying the money. Koli helped Apandekar reach home. His wife rushed him to Bhagwati hospital, but Apandekar died during treatment next day.

The Borivali police booked Kamble and Salve for murder and criminal conspiracy.

Public prosecutor Ashok K Khamkar said,”The judge sentenced Kamble to five years rigorous imprisonment for culpable homicide not amounting to murder. Salve was acquitted for lack of evidence.”
