LN Mishra murder: Court to pronounce sentence on Dec 18

A Delhi court on Monday fixed December 18 for pronouncing punishment to four convicts in the 1975 Lalit Narayan Mishra murder case after hearing the arguments on quantum of sentence during which Central Bureau of Investigation left it to its discretion whether the convicts deserved death penalty.

During arguments, Central Bureau of Investigationprosecutor NK Sharma submitted that an “undesired time” was taken in the disposal of the case but neither the prosecution nor the accused persons were responsible for it.

Sharma did not seek death penalty for the four convicts, saying the court should decide on the issue whether the case falls under the category of “rarest of rare” warranting the extreme sentence.
