UP court sentences 8 to death for murdering 3 of a family

Bareilly: A local court in Uttar Pradesh sentenced eight people to death in a case of triple murder that happened ten years ago. The murder happened amid a dacoity in the house of an income tax inspector, PTI reported.

The eight convicts, who were awarded death sentences by Special Fast Track Court Judge Ravi Kumar Diwakar, belonged to the Chaimar Hassen gang. They were identified as Wajid, Haseen, Yasin alias Zeeshan, Nazima, Hashima, Sameer alias Sahib, Zulfam and Fahim. They murdered the mother, brother, and sister-in-law of an Income Tax Inspector during a dacoity in Suresh Sharma Nagar here. Meanwhile, a ninth accused a jeweller who had bought the stolen metal has been sentenced to life imprisonment.

According to the prosecution, Assistant District Government Advocate (Criminal) Digambar Patel, the income tax inspector, Ravikant Mishra, left his home for Pilibhit on April 21, 2014, at 9 am. When he returned on 23 April, the house's gate was locked from inside.

The window in the gallery was found open, its grill removed, and the door to the terrace was open. When he looked inside from the roof of an under-construction house nearby, he saw the body of his 70-year-old mother, Pushpa, lying near the stairs. The bodies of his brother Yogesh and his wife Priya were found in the bedroom, and his house was ransacked. Police, after investigation, filed a charge sheet against nine people, including the jeweller who bought the goods.

During the investigation, police found that the accused had broken into the house at night through the neighbouring under-construction house by removing the grill of the window.

When Mishra's mother woke up due to the noise, the thieves killed her by hitting her on the head with a brick.

They then killed his brother and sister-in-law with a crowbar and brick.

On a tip-off, police on May 2, 2014, raided some camps located on the banks of a river in Umaria village of Bithri.

They found silver coins, some papers, and a purse, all of which Mishra identified as belongings of his family.

On strict interrogation, the suspects confessed to the crime, he said.

When the photographs of the convicts were published in newspapers on May 3, it was found that some of them used to roam around the house in the garb of vegetable sellers before they executed the attack.
