The Nagpur bench of Bombay High Court on May 5, upheld the double death sentence of both the accused - Rajesh Daware and Arvind Abhilash Singh in the Yug Chandak murder case.

Both the convicts were awarded a rare double death penalty on February 4 for diabolical murder of the 8-year-old Yug Chandak on September 1, 2014, that sparked off huge outrage and candlelight protests in the city.

While, a Pune Sessions court sentenced Baig, the lone German Bakery blast case convict to death on April 18.The Court had found Baig guilty of criminal conspiracy and murder in connection with the blasts that killed 17 people and injured 58, at Pune on February 13, 2010.
