Mumbai: Man gets life in jail for killing drunk person

Press Trust of India  |  Mumbai 

A court in Mumbai sentenced a 42-

year-old man to life imprisonment for killing a person who was drunk at the time.

Pradeep Varekar was found guilty recently under IPC section 302 (murder) by additional sessions judge Kishore M Jaiswal for killing Rupesh Mayaker near the latter's house in Ghatkopar in June, 2016.

As per the prosecution, Mayaker was drunk and his conduct annoyed Varekar who hit the former with a wooden plank several times, killing him on the spot.

Seven witnesses were examined during the course of trial.
