Nikam appointed as lawyer in Rueben, Keenan case

On October 20, Rueben Fernandes (28) and Keenan Sentos (25) were attacked with choppers by a group of four outside a bar.



Mumbai: Maharashtra government would appoint
well-known advocate Ujjwal Nikam as lawyer in the Amboli eve- teasing double murder case, Home Minister R R Patil said
on Thursday.

"The case would be tried in a fast track court and Ujjwal
Nikam has been appointed as the lawyer. The government would
bore the expenditure of the case," Patil was quoted as saying
in a release issued here.

"The state home department has asked the Centre to make
section 509, which deals with eve-teasing as non-bailable and
cognisable offence," he added.

On October 20, Rueben Fernandes (28) and Keenan Sentos
(25) were attacked with choppers by a group of four outside a
bar, after the two objected to indecent behaviour of the group
targeting the girls who were with them.

Meanwhile, a delegation of `Yuva-Satta` group which has
started the `Zero Tolerance Campaign` after the murder of
Reuben and Keenan met Patil over the issue.
