SC to take plea challenging Madras HC order against conviction in murder case

-

New Delhi, Jun 14 (ILNS) The Supreme Court will today take up a petition challenging the Madras High Court order against the conviction and sentence of the petitioner in a murder case.

The Bench of Justice Indira Banerjee and Justice MR Shah will hear the matter related to the killing of one Velmurugan by accused Stalin, Ramadoss, Sivadoss and Shanmugam.

The Madurai Bench of Madras High Court had held, “There is sufficient evidence to show that all the four accused shared a common intention to eliminate Velmurugan (deceased) as they had gathered at the place of occurrence with weapons, knowing full well that Velmurugan (deceased) and Veeramurugan (PW 2) will come for the temple festival.

“The motive for the attack is that Chellapandian (PW 1) and his son Veeramurugan (PW 2) had questioned the accused for consuming liquor in their agricultural land. The nature of the injuries and the parts of the body which were subject to attack, show the intention of the accused,” said the High Court order dated May 8, 2020. ILNS/DS/RJ
