A local court on Thursday reserved its judgement on Kudko murder case, in which former Jharkhand Chief Minister and JMM chief Shibu Soren is an accused and appeared before the court.
The Additional District Judge (9th-fast track), Mohammad Qasim, set June 15 to deliver the verdict.
The case was transfered to the court after a request by the First Additional District and Sessions court of N N Singh on April 16.
An FIR was filed on April 15, 1974 by one Bahadur Singh, who accused Soren of heading a group that allegedly killed Khirodar Singh and Chundi Singh following slaughter of a goat at Kudko village under Pirtand police station in Giridih district.
The charge-sheet was filed in 1978. Soren is the sole accused now as eight others were acquitted way back in 1986.
