Supreme Court on Friday dismissed a curative petition filed by Kerala government in the sensational Soumya challenging the convict Govindachamy's acquittal from murder charge
Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Tuesday assured all support to ensure justice to the family of Soumya, who was allegedly raped and murdered after being pushed out from a moving train
The February-2011 Soumya rape and murder case of Kerala that once again returned to national headlines last week following Supreme Court’s refusal to give death penalty to the accused — Govindachamy — appears to have entered another round of controversy among the legal experts
Is there more to Govindachamy’s story than just the case of a ‘one-handed beggar’? Is he part of a bigger, powerful syndicate?
Former Supreme Court judge Markandey Katju said on Friday that the apex court had "grievously erred by law" in the Soumya rape and murder case in which the death sentence of the accused Govindacahamy was commuted.
Kerala High Court on Tuesday confirmed the death sentence awarded to Govindachamy by a Fast Track Court for brutally raping and causing the death of a 23-year-old woman after pushing her out of a moving train on 1 February, 2008.
