The Bangalore Rural court on Monday sentenced two persons to life imprisonment in a murder case. Yogesh and Mohan Kumar, who had killed Mariswamy on January 20, 2010, were also ordered to pay Rs30,000 to the parents of the victim in addition to Rs10,000 penalty to the court.
The duo had killed Mariswamy as he was ragging Yogesh’s sister. Yogesh and Mohan decided to kill Mariswamy as he paid no heed to their warnings.
They offered liquor to Mariswamy and headed towards Hoodi. From Hoodi, they went to Kadugodi. Mariswamy was urinating near a railway gate in the midnight when Yogesh and Mohan came from behind and stabbed him. They then set Mariswamy on fire.
