The Additional District Court here convicted and sentenced three persons, including two brothers, to life sentence in connection with the murder of a farmer in 2011. According to the prosecution, J. Jayapal, son of Jayaraj (55), a farmer of Thinnanurkadu village on the Kolli hills, married Radha, daughter of his aunt in 2011, despite opposition from the girl’s side.
Enraged by this, Venkatachalam (37) and Nagaraj (30) – both brothers of Radha – frequently quarrelled with Jayapal and Jayaraj.
The brothers and a relative, Manikandan (37), had a quarrel with Jayaraj on April 4, 2011. The trio shot him with a country-made gun and also attacked him with a weapon, killing him on the spot. Vazhavanthinaadu police arrested all the three accused and filed a case in the Additional District Court. The Judge, Dhanasekaran, found them guilty of the charge on Friday.
