INDIA: DEATH SENTENCE FOR MAN CONVICTED OF KILLING KERALA FAMILY

March 21, 2017:

A 30-year-old migrant worker convicted of murdering his employer and his parents in Kerala’s Kottayam district has been handed the death sentence.
The Kottayam Principal Sessions Court said on March 21 the crime committed by Narendra Kumar fell within the rarest of rare category, and ruled that the convict must pay Rs300,000 and another Rs25,000 he had stolen from his victims, to the surviving member of the family.
The incident happened on May 16, 2015, at Parambuzha near Kottayam, where Kumar was employed by a dry cleaning firm run by Praveen Lal, 28 and his parents, Mooleparambil Lalason, 71, and Prasannakumari, 62.
The dry cleaning and laundry unit was attached to the family’s house.
Kumar had come from Firozabad in Uttar Pradesh to Kerala in search of work.
He committed the crime apparently for money.
After bludgeoning all three, and striking them with an axe, Kumar also gave them electric shocks to ensure they were all dead.
Praveen Lal was murdered first.
Kumar then got his parents to come to the house and murdered them, too.
After the crime, he hired an autorickshaw to go to the Kottayam railway station, from where he went to Goa and Mumbai on way to Uttar Pradesh.
Kerala police searched for him relentlessly and a team led by the circle inspector of Pampady, Saju Varghese finally nabbed him from Uttar Pradesh.
Kumar had been doing odd works at the laundry unit, including pressing clothes. He later confessed to police that he had committed the crime to make enough money to settle his debts.
