A court in Maharashtra’s Thane district sentenced a 28-year-old labourer to imprisonment for life for bludgeoning a colleague to death and injuring two others. Principal district and sessions judge Abhay J Mantri on Thursday found the accused guilty of charges under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code and imposed a fine of Rs 3,000.
Additional public prosecutor AP Ladwanjari informed the court that the accused and the victims worked as sweepers with a company and were involved in a petty dispute over cleaning of toilets at Raymond Ground.
On February 4, 2018, the victim and others were playing cards, when the accused arrived with a crowbar and attacked him and injured the others, he said.
The victim died on the spot due to severe head injuries, while two others were injured in the attack.
