The Supreme Court on Monday confirmed death penalty to serial killer BA Umesh. The court’s division bench dismissed his review petition.
The apex court said, “Dismissed his plea for review of death penalty.”
Earlier Karnataka High Court had also confirmed BA Umesh’s death penalty.
The former CRPF constable was arrested for the rape and murder of Jayashree Maradi Subbaiah, 37, and sentenced to death by a fast-track court in 2006. His mercy plea was rejected by the President on May 12, 2013.
