Mumbai: A Mumbai sessions court on Monday adjourned the hearing in infamous Keenan-Reuben murder case till May 5.

Keenan Santos, 24, and Reuben Fernandez,29, were repeatedly stabbed outside an eatery at Amboli on October 20, 2011 when they tried to protect their women friends from a group of men. Keenan succumbed to his injuries on the same day, while Reuben died 10 days later on October 31.

Speaking to the media outside court, Keenan’s father Valerian Santos said he wanted a good judgment and nothing less than life imprisonment until death for the culprits.

Four accused - Jitendra Rana, Sunil Bodh, Satish Dulhaj and Dipak Tival - were arrested the next day and a fast-track court had in October framed charges against them for murder, conspiracy and molestation.

Ujjwal Nikam has been appointed as the public prosecutor.
