A city court Thursday awarded the death sentence to the domestic help of an elderly woman for murdering her and her 12-year-old grandson in 2007 in the Vasant Kunj neighbourhood of south Delhi.
Additional Sessions Judge S.K. Sarvaria awarded the death sentence to Mithilesh Kumar Singh after the prosecution argued that the murder was very brutal and thus the harshest punishment should be given.
On July 1, the court convicted accused for murder, robbery and attempt to murder.
Singh, a resident of Samastipur in Bihar, killed Surjit Kaur, 60, and her grandson Karamveer Singh, 12, on March 2, 2007.
