Mumbai : Five years after Mumbai youth Keenan and Reuben were killed while attempting to save their ladies friends from a gathering of crooks harrassing them, a special court here today sentenced all the four accused for life term.
Special Women’s Court Judge Vrushali Joshi said the blamed will be in prison for the rest of their life.
She held the accused–Jitendra Rana, Sunil Bodh, Satish Dulhaj and Dipak Tival–guilty of murder, outraging the modesty of women and other charges of the Indian Penal Code, in a case which sparked outrage and debate about the safety of women in public places.
Keenan Santos (24) and Reuben Fernandez (29) were stabbed by eve-teasers after a scuffle at Amboli in suburban Andheri on October 20, 2011.
The victims were attacked when they tried to shield their women companions from a group of men who harassed, abused and misbehaved with them outside an eatery at Amboli in suburban Andheri.
