Soumya case: SC agrees to hear review plea in open court

New Delhi: The Supreme Court Thursday agreed to hear the review plea in the Soumya murder case in open court.

The review plea was filed by Soumya’s mother and the state government challenging apex court’s verdict cancelling the death sentence of the accused.

The apex court had dropped the murder charge against Govindachami and commuted his death penalty to seven years of jail while upholding the life imprisonment awarded by a trial court on charges of rape.
