Bangalore: A local court Wednesday adjourned to
September 17 hearing in the case of rape and murder of a BPO
employee by a cab driver.
When the case, going on since 2005, came up for hearing
before the 11th Fast Track Court, Judge B V Guddali posted it
to September 17 as the accused Shiva Kumar could not be
produced in court due to illness.
The incident, in which BPO employee Pratibha Srikanthamur
Srikanthamurthy was allegedly raped and murdered in December
2005, forced many BPO firms to have a relook at Human Resource
Management rules as the cab driver was employed by the firm.
So far 80 witnesses have been examined in the case.
