Life sentence for four in Mumbai double-murder case

court(IANS) A Sessions Court here on Thursday sentenced to life imprisonment four youths charged with killing two men who attempted to prevent them from molesting their women friends five years ago, a top legal official said.

The convicts are Jitesha Rana, Sunil Bodh, Satish Dulgaj and Dipak Pivar who had attacked Keenan Santos, 24, and his friend Rueben Fernandes, 29, on the night of October 20, 2011, after they tried to harass their two women friends outside a restaurant in Andheri.

Special Public Prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam, who directed the prosecution in the case, said he had not sought the death penalty for the accused since there was no conspiracy and it was not a pre-planned murder.
