The Lucknow Allahabad High Court upheld the death sentence by CBI court to a man convicted of killing six people

The Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court on Tuesday upheld the death sentence awarded by a CBI court to a man convicted of killing six people, including his wife and their three children, in 2009. The convict Sarvan also killed his neighbor and her son. The jury also upheld the four-year rigorous imprisonment sentence given to Sharvan’s sister-in-law Suman for tampering with evidence.

Sarvan killed his wife Santoshi (35) and children Ravi (1), Sumiran (4) and Ramroop (6) after she objected to his extramarital affair with his sister-in-law. When they tried to intervene, he also killed the neighbor Madhuri (50) and her son Rajendra (11). Earlier, public prosecutor Vimal Srivastava had argued that Sarvan had committed the massacre in full consciousness and therefore deserved nothing less than the death penalty.

Describing the case as the rarest of the rare, Justice Ramesh Sinha and Justice Saroj Yadav said, “The manner in which the offense was committed and also the scale of the offence, in our view, places this case in the category of anti-social or socially repulsive nature of the offence”. “Sharvan murdered six people in the most brutal and grotesque manner, which aroused the indignation and revulsion of society, which calls for exemplary punishment,” it said.

Rejecting Sarvan’s acquittal plea, the court said, “We find no remorse on the part of convict Sarvan. Rather, he admitted his guilt of having an illicit relationship with his sister-in-law Suman and his wife protested against it.” Apart from upholding Sarvan’s death sentence, the court also dismissed Suman’s appeal and ordered her to undergo the jail term as awarded by the court. On 29 August 2017, the CBI court awarded Sarvan the death sentence. It also found his sister-in-law Suman guilty in the case. Reference sent by HC for confirmation. An FIR in the incident was lodged at the Mohanlalganj police station in Lucknow on the complaint of Madhuri’s husband Kolai on 25 April 2009.
