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
The 23-year-old Soumya was attacked, pushed out of a moving train and brutally raped on 1 February, 2011 after which she succumbed to her injuries
Congress in Kerala on Saturday sharpened its attack against the LDF government on alleged lapses in conduct of the Soumya rape and murder case in the Supreme Court, saying the present debate by CPI(M) on the death penalty was an attempt to "cover up" their slip and divert public anger.
Is there more to Govindachamy’s story than just the case of a ‘one-handed beggar’? Is he part of a bigger, powerful syndicate?
The Supreme Court set aside the death sentence given to Govindachamy - the convict in the Soumya rape and murder case - and reduced it to seven-year jail term on Thursday.
