Pune, 24th August 2023: The district court has awarded a verdict of life imprisonment accompanied by a fine of 2 lakh rupees each for four individuals found guilty of fatally stabbing a young man due to a longstanding feud. Additional Sessions Judge PP Jadhav pronounced this ruling.

The convicts, namely Haider Javed Syed (18, resident of Vijayanagar, Kalewadi), Vikram alias Vicky Nandu Bihari alias Bhilare (21), Sajeesh Ashok Kurwat (all three residents of Kalewadi), and Avinash Gautam Bansode (18, resident of Hind Kesarinagar, Bopkhel), were handed this sentence.

The victim, Rakesh Namdev Ghule (25, resident of Bopkhel), was murdered on November 21, 2010. A case was lodged against a total of seven individuals, including the four who have now been sentenced, at Hinjawadi police station.

Among the accused, one was a minor at the time of the crime, while another passed away during the trial. The hearing for the remaining accused is being held separately due to their critical condition. The four individuals who received the life sentence were incarcerated from September 2012 until February 16, 2019.

The roots of the incident trace back to March 2010 when Rakesh allegedly attempted to stab the accused in Bopkhel. Consequently, seeking revenge for this altercation, the culprits hatched a plan and rendezvoused with Rakesh at Kalewadi Phata in Thergaon on November 21, 2010. There, they mercilessly attacked him, inflicting 36 blows to his hand, head, and back using sharp weapons. During the investigation, two knives utilized in the crime were discovered at the scene.

Public Prosecutor Rajesh Kavedia led the case, presenting the testimony of 11 witnesses to substantiate the charges. The accounts of a doctor and eyewitnesses held pivotal significance.

The court further ordered that 5 lakh rupees should be awarded as compensation to Rakesh’s family from the fine collected. If the convicts fail to pay the fine, they will face an additional one-year sentence, as stipulated by the court’s verdict.
