Ahmedabad: A woman was sentenced to life imprisonment by a local court for killing her paramour, who refused to marry her.

Principal District Sessions Judge G N Patel convicted Farheen Pathan (28) yesterday while acquitting seven other accused in the case for lack of evidence.

Pathan was caught with the body of Devang Joshi in May 2006 from Jamalpur area of the city, where she had planned to dispose it off by throwing it into the Sabarmati river.

Joshi used to sell kerosene in Juhapura area of the city, where he came in contact with Farheen, a widow and mother of two children.

Both fell in love with each other but when Farheen asked Joshi to marry her he refused saying he wished to marry girl from his own religion.

Angered by this, Farheen conspired to kill Joshi and called him to her residence in Juhapura area where she and her other accomplice stabbed him to death.

After killing him, they chopped his body into several pieces and put it a plastic bag. While on their way to Sabarmati, they were nabbed. Though others managed to escape, Farheen was caught.

Farheen and seven others were charged for murder, criminal conspiracy and destruction of evidence.
