Ankit Saxena murder case: Delhi court reserves order on sentence of convicts

New Delhi, Mar 2 (IANS): A Delhi court on Saturday reserved its order on sentence for the three convicts involved in the killing of Ankit Saxena, who was murdered in full public view in the national capital in 2018.

Additional Sessions Judge (ASJ) Sunil Kumar Sharma of Tis Hazari Court reserved his verdict for March 7 on sentence to Akbar Ali, Shahnaz Begum, and Mohammad Salim, who were convicted on December 23 last year.

The Delhi Legal Service Authority (DLSA), had previously submitted the Victim Impact Assessment Report concerning the Saxena, whose mother is the sole surviving member of the family following the demise of his father. The report was pivotal for assessing compensation and the judge took it on record.

On Saturday, Delhi police argued for maximum punishment for convicts for the offence. The defence counsel, whereas, urged the court to take a lenient view on the sentence of the convicts.

During investigation of the case, it was revealed that Saxena was in a relationship with a girl of different religion and the perpetrators of the crime were the parents and maternal uncle of the girl, who opposed their interfaith relationship. They were later convicted.

The charges against the convicts include IPC Sections 302 (murder) and 34 (acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention). Moreover, Shahnaz Begum has also been convicted of voluntarily causing hurt.
