SRINAGAR – A court in Srinagar On Monday sentenced the accused in the “Romana Hit and Run Case” to imprisonment for life.

The Principal, District & Sessions Judge, Srinagar, Abdul Rashid Malik also directed State Legal Services Authority, to pay compensation of Rs 5 lakh to the mother of the victim.

The court while announcing the judgment observed that “in view of convincing and clinching prosecution evidence, the inevitable conclusion is that prosecution has proved the charges against the accused beyond any reasonable doubt while awarding life sentence to the accused (Mohammad Shoaib Darial) under Section 302 RPC,” reads the judgment.

The Court further observed that “the prosecution has proved beyond reasonable doubt that the accused used the vehicle as a weapon of offence and hit the deceased with all force and intention to kill her.”

The accused, the Court observed “tried to run over Romana but the hit of the vehicle was so powerful that the deceased blew up and fell down on the ground. The vital injuries on her head and other parts of the body proved by the doctor demonstrate that the accused had no other intention except to kill the deceased to take revenge from her for not responding to his request on the chit to talk to him on his cell phone. “Therefore, the commission of offence under Sections 302 is proved beyond any shadow of doubt.”
