Pune: The Bombay High Court is expected to confirm the quantum of punishment in the 2007 rape, abduction and murder of a Pune BPO employee, Jyotikumari Chaudhary. It had upheld the conviction of two people last week. A sessions court had given them the death sentence.
Twenty two-year-old Jyotikumari Chaudhary was raped and killed in November 2007. Her body was found at Wadgaon, off the Mumbai-Pune Expressway, on the outskirts of Pune a day later.
The driver of her office cab, Purshottam Borate and a friend of his, Pradip Kokate, were arrested and charged with rape and murder. The men were said to have been working for a logistics company which used to supply vehicles to the call centre.
