Budgam resident convicted for murder
Srinagar: The court of Principal Sessions Judge Srinagar, Abdul Rashid Malik Saturday convicted a Budgam resident of murder.
One Javaid Ahmad Bhat, son of Abdul Gani Bhat, a resident of Kremshore, Khan Sahib, Budgam, was convicted under Section 302 RPC for causing the death of Gulshan Akhtar, daughter of Ghulam Hassan Sofi, also a resident of Kremshore. The victim had been murdered in June 2014.
“The evidence produced by the prosecution establishes beyond reasonable doubt that the accused had only intention to kill the deceased after his love affair failed and the motive behind the killing was the refusal of the parents of the deceased to marry the deceased with the accused. The accused strangulated the deceased till she died by wrapping the scarf around her neck and pressed it so hard that the deceased died instantaneously. Therefore, the offence committed by the accused falls under section 302 RPC and the accused is convicted under section 302 RPC accordingly,” Principal Sessions Judge Srinagar, Abdul Rashid Malik wrote in judgment.
