Sri Lankan Tamil gets life sentence for killing college student in India

India: A local court has sentenced a 23-year-old Sri Lankan Tamil refugee to life imprisonment for murdering a college student two years back. According to the prosecution, Gajendran, staying at a refugee camp at Eanchampalli, 25 km from here, waylaid the 20-year-old student Chellapandy and beat him to death with an iron rod on July 3, 2013. Gajendran had fallen in love with a girl in the camp but she rebuffed his advances as she was in love with the student, her cousin, it said.

Delivering the verdict yesterday, Principal District Judge GP Elango sentenced Gajendran to life term for the murder and also three years rigorous imprisonment for hiding evidence by throwing the body into a well. He ordered that both the sentences would run concurrently.
