New Delhi, Sep 4 (IANS) A court here sentenced to death a 28-year-old man who murdered his parents, who had adopted him, and his pregnant wife in 2008, terming him a menace to society.

“The convict (Nitin) is a menace to the society. When he did not spare his own parents and wife and killed them in cold blood, what respect he would show for the lives of others,” Additional Sessions Judge Virender Bhat said.

The court called the convict a live bomb, which has the potential of causing a huge catastrophe, if not destroyed at the earliest.

“I am of the opinion that the life imprisonment would be altogether inadequate punishment in this case, having regard to the nature of crime and manner and circumstances in which it was committed,” Bhat said, terming the case among those rarest of rare cases that have shocked the collective conscience of the society.

“There was no justification at all for the convict to commit the grotesque killings. The convict appears to be without any remorse,” the judge said.

The case dates back to April 2008, when Nitin killed his pregnant wife after she opposed his extramarital affair. He also killed his parents.
