Court Awards Life Imprisonment To Man, His Parents For Killing Wife


Koraput: Koraput Additional District and Sessions Judge has awarded life imprisonment to a man and his parents for killing his wife in 2015.

The convicts have been identified as the deceased’s father-in-law Tarini Pradhan, her mother-in-law Malati Pradhani, and her husband Santosh Kumar Pradhani, all residents of Tikira Sahi of Koraput.

According to the case diary, Tarini Pradhan had administered a Lariago injection to Snehalata before thrashing her with a stick which led to her death. Snehalata’s husband and her mother-in-law had helped Tarini Pradhan in his act.

Following this, Snehalata Dandsena’s brother Subash Dandasena had lodged a complaint with Koraput Town Police Station in 2015 that his sister has been murdered by her in-laws.

Acting on the complaint, the cops had initiated an investigation into the matter and later arrested the five persons including the three convicts and Ganapati Naik and Suresh Chandra Dora in this connection.

However, two of the five accused Ganapati Naik and Suresh Chandra Dora were acquitted due to a lack of evidence against them.
