Chhattisgarh High Court commutes death sentence of man who killed parents over ‘ideological differences’

It was hearing an appeal filed by the convict against a sessions court order which had sentenced him to death for committing the double murder.

As per the prosecution, the convict shot his father dead early in the morning of January 1, 2018. When his mother heard the shots, she phoned her grandson for help. The convict then turned the gun on her and killed her as well.

When the grandson reached the house, he found his grandparents lying dead. He found the convict in his bedroom, pretending that he did not hear the gun shots.

When the convict was interrogated by the police, he revealed that he had ideological differences with his father. While his father was a conservative person, he was free and open-minded. He told the police that his father often scolded him and disliked several of his activities including speaking or meeting his female friends. He claimed that the father threatened that he would deprive him of his property.
