A court in Morena district of Madhya Pradesh has sentenced two brothers to life imprisonment for the murder of their mother and another man.
According to the prosecution, the accused killed their own mo her so that another person could be framed up for her death.
Additional Sessions Judge at Ambah in the district, Mukesh Kumar Batham, convicted Umray (33) and Murari (38) yesterday. Another accused, their eldest brother, is absconding.
Prosecutor Ramniwas Singh Tomar said the two and their eldest brother Dojiram had a quarrel with Ramkhiladi Singh, who lived near their house in Ambah town, on March 7 this year.
When Ramkhiladi Singh's son Mansaram intervened, they shot Mansaram dead, he said.
After returning home, the trio shot their mother Beaunthi Bai (65) and hit her with an axe, killing her on the spot, with the intention of framing up Ramkhiladi for her murder.
They then placed her body near Ramkhiladi's house.
After the investigation, police unravelled the diabolical sequence of events and arrested Umray and Murari.
Dojiram (42) did not stand the trial as he is still absconding, the prosecutor said.
