New Delhi: The special CBI court in Ghaziabad convicted three out of the five main accused in connection with the 2006 murder of Meerut University lecturer Kavita Chaudhary.

As per reports, the CBI court convicted Ravindra, Sultan and Yogesh for their role in Kavita Chaudhary’s murder. However, it acquitted Ashok for the want of concrete evidence.

The quantum of sentence will be pronounced tomorrow.

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, Ravindra Pradhan, the main accused in Chaudhary’s murder, also died under mysterious circumstances 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.
