Suresh Bhagat Murder Case Judgement

Published by Sampath Bulusu
Sessions Court, Mumbai awarded life imprisonment to all six accused convicted in the murder case of matka-king Suresh Bhagat. Among the accused are Bhagat's wife and son. According to the prosecution, the motive behind the murder was Bhagat's wife Jaya and son Hitesh's intention to usurp his property and take over his multi-crore gambling business.

Bhagat, along with five others, was killed, in pursuance to a conspiracy, on Alibaug-Pen road on June 13, 2008, when a truck collided with his Scorpio. Later, police found that the accident had been orchestrated by his wife and others, for taking over the matka business, and they had hired Suhas Roge to do the job. Mumbai Crime Branch arrested Suhas Roge, Harish Mandvekar, Kiran Amle, Shaikh Azimuddin, Pravin Shetty, Jaya Bhagat, Hitesh Bhagat and Kiran Pujari; however Pujari and Azimuddin were granted pardon as they turned approver. The rest were convicted. The prosecution had argued that the accused should be given capital punishment as the case falls under 'rarest of the rare' category. However, the Court observed that though six innocent persons were killed in the orchestrated accident (apart from Bhagat), it was not a rarest of the rare case and "life imprisonment would meet the ends of the justice". Although the conspiracy aimed at eliminating only Bhagat, the intention of killing the co-passengers must be attributed to the accused, the court said
