A Madhya Pradesh serial killer who has been identified as Shivprasad Dhurve, has been sentenced to life imprisonment for killing four on-duty security guards while they were asleep in 2022, according to a report by Hindustan Times.

Convicting Dhurve of killing Shambhu Saran Dubey (60) on August 29, 2022, while he was asleep on his duty at a government college, Justice Prashant Saxena at the Sagar district's additional session's court delivered the verdict noting that Dhurve had smashed Dubey's head with a stone.

According to the prosecution, Dhurve was only 19 when he killed Dubey who was his second victim, as reported by HT.

Before being arrested in September 2022, Dhurve killed two more people.

Citing his reason for killing the four people, Dhurve told the police that he didn't like people who would sleep during their working hours, who formed 10 teams to track Dhurve down.

According to HT, Justice Saxena convicted Dhurve after 25 witnesses deposed against Dhurve in his trial, the publication quoted Saurabh Dimha, the Special public prosecutor, as saying.

Dimha said that Dhurve's verdict included life term under Section 302 (murder), 10 years of rigorous imprisonment and fine of Rs 3,000 under Section 460 (Trespassing), and three years of rigorous imprisonment and a fine of Rs 2,000 under Section 201 (causing disappearance of evidence) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), according to the publication.

The police said that Dhurve in 2018 in Pune, when he was a juvenile, had attacked the owner of the restaurant where he worked as a waiter.

After losing his job, Dhurve returned to Madhya Pradesh's Sagar in 2022.

The first murder committed by Dhurve was reported on August 28, 2022 when he smashed Kalyan Lodhi's (57) head, who was working at a factory.

According to the publication, Dubey, Dhurve's second victim was found dead on August 29 and his third victim's murder was reported on August 30. Dhurve committed his third murder by killing Mangal Ahirwar (45) using a plougher.

In May, Dhurve killed another security guard named Uttam Rajak who worked at an under-construction railway bridge.
