In a 14 year old murder case, Tripura Court sentences seven to life imprisonment

Tripura: In a 14-year-old culpable homicide case, on Wednesday, a local court in Tripura awarded life imprisonment to seven convicts. An 80-year-old lady was lynched to death in the year 2008 and after a prolonged trial, the Court pronounced its order on Wednesday.

Government advocate Pulak Kar Debnath said that the additional district Judge West Tripura Govinda Das sentenced seven convicts to life imprisonment in connection with the murder case of an 80-year-old lady, Niru Bala Sarkar.

“A total of seven persons have been awarded life imprisonment in connection with a murder case that took place on November 11 of 2008 at Kalyanpur para of Barjala, located at the outskirts of Agartala city,” he said.

Explaining the chain of events, Debnath said that a hot altercation broke out between Lal Mohan Sarkar and his neighbor Sujit Malakar over cattle feed. The issue turned into confrontation, he said. Sujit Malakar with eight to ten people attacked Lalmohan Sarkar’s house on the same night, at around 7:30 pm. They assaulted them with lathi, rod and other sharp objects. When Lalmohan’s wife Nirubal Sarkar attempted to stop them, the attackers-Sujit Malakar, Uttam Sarkar, Ujjal Deb, Pankaj Sutradhar, Litan Nag, Amit Deb, Rajen Deb, Ajit Sarkar, and Gopal Pal-attacked her brutally. She received grievous injuries on her head and was admitted to GB Pant hospital where she succumbed to injuries. Lalmohan Sarkar and one of his neighbors, Manoranjan Sarkar had suffered minor injuries during the attack and were hospitalized.

“Seven convicts were awarded life imprisonment. However, main accused Sujit Malakar and Gopal Pal are still absconding,” he said.
