Mumbai: A Mumbai 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.
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.
Talking to reporters, Keenan’s father Valerian Santos said he was happy with the sentence given to the guilty. “They should live every moment thinking about Keenan and Reuben,” said Santos.
“After a lot of pain, the court has finally given the verdict what we wanted,” he said, adding: “Even if they (guilty) go to God, I will still stand in front and ask for justice for my son.”
Santos further said that the journey was still not over as the guilty will appeal to higher courts, that is their right.
