Death sentence of Ripper Jayanandan commuted to life term

Kochi: The High Court Monday commuted the death sentence of 'Ripper' Jayanandan, accused in several cases of murder and robbery, to life imprisonment in one of the murder cases against him.

A division bench headed by Justice K T Sankaran said the accused should undergo rigorous imprisonment till the end of his life.

The court gave its verdict considering Jayanandan's appeal against the sessions court awarding him death sentence for murdering a housewife at Puthenvelikkara in 2006.

Earlier, in a double murder case also the death sentence was commuted by the high court.

In its judgement, the high court said the case will not fall within the category of rarest of the rare case.

However, the bench following the judgement in Swamy Shraddananda case of the apex court, said that the accused should remain in jail till the end of his life without parole or remission.
