HC confirms death sentence for three

The convicts, Madhu, Rafeeq and Jayanna had plotted to kill Madhusudhan of Sagar, a commission agent who was also into selling ginger. On August 8, 2005, Madhusudhan was returning home in the evening, when the three men came in a van and abducted him. They stole Rs four lakh in cash, his cellphone and a gold chain. They killed him, decapitated the head and threw the body in a river. The head was buried. They were arrested after Rajesh, one of the culprits confessed to his crime to a relative.  A sessions court had convicted the three and awarded the death sentence in July, 2008. Justices K Sreedhar Rao and B V Pinto upheld the death sentence.

Kheny’s petition dismissed

The High Court has dismissed the complaint of misappropriation of funds  against Kannada film director Indrajit Lankesh. The complaint was filed by Ashok Kheny, Managing Director, Nandi Infrastructure Corridor Enterprises Ltd.

Justice C R Kumaraswamy, who heard the matter, dismissed the petition stating this does not amount to criminal offence. The CCB sleuths were probing the complaint of misappropriation of funds by Lankesh following a complaint filed in 2008 by Kheny. Lankesh who had agreed to direct some of the films, allegedly withdrew,  leaving the first movie ‘Shaadi Ke After Effects’ half finished.
