Badaun: Eleven people were on Tuesday sentenced to life imprisonment by a local court here in a
17-year-old abduction case.

On October 31, 1994, Veerpal (22) was abducted for ransom
by 11 persons from Munish Nagar village when he was returning
from fields with workers, prosecution sources said here.

The abductors demanded Rs four lakh as ransom and
Chiraunji was released after the amount was paid, they said.

Police later arrested five accused during combing in the
jungles and on their tip off six more were nabbed.

After hearing both parties, Special Judge (anti-dacoity)
held Aharan, Banke Lal, Ram Karan, Prempal, Veeru Pal,
Prakash, Rajeshwar, Chiraunji, Ravindra, Dafedar and Satyendra
guilty.

The court also imposed a fine of Rs 10,000 on each of the
accused.
