Jammu, Apr 27: A woman was awarded life imprisonment for murdering another woman at the latter’s residence in ward No 10, Kathua, in 2012 by Principal sessions Judge, Kathua, Sanjay Dhar.
Seeing Soma wearing gold earrings and rings, she thought of stealing them.
On October 23, 2012 at about 3.30 pm she went to Kamlesh’s house with her son and then to that of Soma for the purpose of carrying out a survey. After spending some time with Soma, she again returned to Kamlesh’s house.
Late night that day, she again came to Soma’s house and knocked at the door which Soma had closed from inside. Soma opened the door and then allowed her to sleep with her on the bed.
After Soma fell asleep, Kumari very cunningly hit a brick on her head and then robbed her of her gold earrings and other rings said the police. She even tried to break open the lock of other room, but failed.
After getting down from the roof of the house she straightway went to Kamlesh’s house and later gave the stolen rings to goldsmith Anil Kumar to make ornaments for her daughter.
These ornaments were recovered by police from the goldsmith after Kumari narrated the whole episode.
In proof of offence under section 392 of RPC, she is sentenced to undergo rigorous imprisonment for three years and pay a fine of Rs 5,000, the court ordered.
