Convict hurls slipper at judgetext_fields
Kalpetta: A man convicted by a trial court here for sexually assaulting a minor hurled a slipper at the judge Friday after he was sentenced to 21 years in prison.
As soon as Additional Sessions Judge (ad hoc) I Panjabakesan of a local court in Wayanad pronounced the sentence, convict Armugham removed one of his slippers and flung it at the judge, hitting him, the police said.
The man had been held guilty of various offences in a 2014 case under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act.
Armugham was arrested and a fresh case was registered against him, the police said.
