Death sentence for two Kerala policemen

“Law enforcers are the protectors of life and property, and not death dealers.” Here, he said, they had killed an innocent in their custody. “They deserve no clemency,” the judge said, ruling that the crime fell in the rarest of rare category that deserved death.

The court also sentenced two retired Superintendents of Police, K. Haridas and E. K. Sabu, and one serving Deputy Superintendent of Police, Ajith Kumar, to three years in prison for having attempted to cover up the crime by registering a false case of theft against Udayakumar, suppressing evidence and falsifying station records. The accused had apprehended Udayakumar from a nearby public park along with one Suresh Kumar, a history-sheeter, on September 27, 2005.
