New Delhi, July 19 (IANS) A city court Saturday sentenced two youngsters to jail for life after convicting them of killing a man in 2001. Additional Sessions Judge V.K. Bansal jailed Brijesh Mawe and Neb Singh for life, after they were convicted of killing Omi Udhas, a telephone booth owner. They had shot him dead due to personal enmity.
The court also slapped a fine of Rs.2,500 on Mawe and Rs.2,000 on Singh, members of a gang run by Satish Chaudhary who was also an accused in the case but was killed by the Delhi Police in 2006.
On June 6, 2001, Udhas was in his telephone booth at Malviya Nagar in South Delhi when three people came posing as customers and shot him.
Vicky Malik, Udhas’ nephew who also runs a shop nearby, was a crucial eyewitness and testified in the court.
Earlier, members of the same gang had killed Udhas’ father too.
The court this week convicted them under section 302 (murder) and section 407 (criminal breach of trust) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
