Dharamsala court finds all four guilty in Kachroo murder case

November 11th, 2010 - 1:18 pm ICT by ANI  

Dharamsala, Nov 11 (ANI): A sessions court in Dharamsala on Thursday found all the four accused students guilty of culpable homicide not amounting to murder in the murder case of first-year medical science student Aman Kachroo.

The quantum of punishment will be decided later in the case. The maximum term of punishment can go upto ten years.

The defence now has six months time to prepare the case.

Kachroo, 19, was mercilessly ragged and killed by four senior doctors on March 8, 2009 at his Rajendra Prasad Medical College Hostel in Himachal Pradesh’s Kangra District.

The accused are facing trial on murder charges.

The fast-track court had resumed the trial against the accused students in August 2010 after they surrendered following cancellation of their bail applications.

A Supreme Court appointed committee had found rampant alcoholism on the campus and a lack of anti-ragging norms as the reason behind Aman Kachroo’s death.

The apex court appointed committee also recommended action against the college principal as it found him to be lackadaisical in dealing with Aman’s complaints. (ANI)
