Man gets 5-yr RI for disposing murder victim's body
One-liner: A court in Maharashtra's Thane district has sentenced a man to five years of rigorous imprisonment for his involvement in disposing of the body of a murder victim.
Guilty of charges: Sessions judge Dr Rachna R Tehra found the accused Kamlesh Sukuman Bansal guilty of charges under section 201 (causing disappearance of evidence of offence) of the IPC.
Fine imposed: In an order dated March 4, the court sentenced the accused to five years of rigorous imprisonment and imposed a fine of ₹5,000 on him.
2 sentenced to life: The two other accused who were also tried in the same case were found guilty of the charges of murder and also disposed of the victim's body and were sentenced to life imprisonment.
Body dumped into a dustbin: Additional public prosecutor E B Dhamal told the court that on July 4, 2015, the accused had killed the victim Katrikumar Indushankar Jaiswal, and cut his body into pieces and packed them in plastic bags, which they dumped into a dustbin near a public toilet at CBD railway station in Navi Mumbai.
Bottom line: While the court acquitted the accused on murder charges, he was found guilty of helping the other accused in disposing of the body.
