Four jailed for entire life for murdering youth

Four men have been jailed for their entire life by a Delhi court for murdering a 20-year-old youth by brutally stabbing him 29 times after kidnapping him for ransom.

The court said inflicting 29 incised knife injuries showed that the convicts not only wanted to kill the victim, Raju Roy, but also deliver pain and suffering.

Additional Sessions Judge Virender Kumar Bansal awarded imprisonment till the remainder of their lives to convicts Biplav Biswas, Deepak, Hardeep and Deepak, all residents of Mangol Puri in
North Delhi.

"Life imprisonment shall mean remainder of their natural life," the court made it clear in its 186-page verdict.

The court said Biswas, a close friend of Roy, had betrayed the victim's trust and conspired to kidnap him for a ransom and murdered him.

"This was possible because Biswas called him (victim) there and thereafter sent the victim with the
accused persons.

It was only due to conspiracy of Biswas that it was possible," the court said.

The convicts wanted to raise ransom from Roy's father who was a medical practitioner and used to run a clinic here.

"The murder was also committed with brutality as pointed out by the prosecutor for the State by inflicting 29 incised wounds which shows that convicts not only wanted to kill him but kill him by giving him pain and sufferings," it said. The four men were held guilty of the offences of criminal conspiracy, kidnapping for ransom, robbery
and murder.
