THE court of Shahjahanpur additional district and sessions judge has sentenced a lesbian couple and three contract killers to life imprisonment for a double murder that took place in district’s Khutar area in August 2007.
The accused couple — Kamla and Shanti Devi — and contract killers Rameshwar, Ganga Singh and Vishnu Pal were sentenced on Friday for the murders of Kamla’s husband Suresh and his elder brother Ram Naresh. Following the judgment, all five accused — who were out on bail — were sent to jail.
“Police had found that the married woman was in a relationship with her neighbour. They planned the murder because Kamla was being forced to end the relationship.
