Soumya murder: state govt files curative plea in SC

New Delhi: The state government Saturday filed a curative plea in the Supreme Court after its review pleas were rejected in the Soumya case.

The curative plea reportedly argues that the attack on Soumya in the train and outside should be treated as one sequential crime and not as separate crimes as is being treated by the Supreme Court.

Advocate general Sudhakar Prasad had given the nod to the legal team fighting the case on behalf of the state government for filing the curative petition.

The Supreme Court had rejected review pleas filed by the Kerala government and Soumya's mother in the murder case.

The 23-year-old Soumya was attacked, pushed out of a moving train and brutally raped on 1 February, 2011. She succumbed to injuries at the Government Medical College Hospital, Thrissur, on 6 February, 2011.

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.
