Four youths, all aged 21, have been sentenced to life imprisonment for murdering their former school mate by a court here.
Principal District and Sessions Judge Kumara Guru found the youths guilty of hacking to death Ajay Reuban, an engineering student, here on December 31, 2012.
The victim was initially rescued by a friend but the four, who were allegedly drunk, chased and brutally hacked him with knives. He succumbed to injuries on January 5.
According to prosecution, there was enmity between Ajay and the assailants over a ragging incident when they all were students of a school.
The four, who bore vengeance, saw Ajay at a bus stand while returning from a new year revelry and stabbed him.
