New Delhi: The special CBI court in Ghaziabad on Friday awarded a life sentence to two persons convicted in connection with the 2006 murder of Meerut University lecturer Kavita Chaudhary.
As per reports, the CBI court awarded life imprisonment to Ravindra and Sultan and a three-year term for the third convict Yogesh for their role in Kavita Chaudhary’s murder. The CBI court had already acquitted Ashok-the fourth accused- for the want of concrete evidence.
The fifth and the main accused Pradhan has already died few years back under mysterious circumstance.
After the court verdict, Yogesh, who has already served his three years in jail, will now be released from jail.
The CBI has in past interrogated several high profile politicians including then irrigation minister Mehrajuddin Ahmed in connection with the mystery disappearance and murder of a university lecturer.
The case saw several twists and turn as in 2009, Pradhan, the main accused in the murder, also died mysteriously in a highly secured Dasna Jail.
A medical report later confirmed that Pradhan’s didn’t die a natural death in jail. The viscera report of Pradhan also confirmed that glass pieces were found in his stomach.
Chaudhary, who went missing in October 2006, was allegedly murdered later following a dispute over sharing the blackmail money extorted from former state irrigation minister Mehrajuddin Ahmed.
