to life imprisonment for killing his girlfriend 7 years ago. Manish Thakur (35) has been convicted under section 302 of the Indian Penal Code and sections 3, 25 and 27 of the Arms Act.

Kaushambi Layek, who worked with Tata Consultancy Services, was shot dead at a hotel in Andheri on May 13, 2007. She hailed from Jharkhand.

Manish Thakur was attached to the naval aeronautical wing of the Indian Navy. He was posted on INS Hansa during the period of the crime. He was arrested from Goa, a week after the murder.

The prosecution argued that the duo was in a relationship, but Ms. Layek started distancing herself from him after she came to know he was already married. The accused had convinced her to visit him once in a hotel.

Accordingly, the duo checked in at Sun-n-Sheel in Andheri on May 12, 2007. In the night between May 12 and 13, Thakur shot two rounds from a country-made revolver to kill Ms. Layek. He then left the hotel room, and went to Goa.

The police were called by the hotel staff after finding the body in the room. They recovered his vest and a chopper from the room. This helped them nab Thakur and he was arrested from Vasco.

The prosecution examined 29 witnesses, while the defence examined 6. Judge D.W. Deshpande sentenced Thakur to life imprisonment.
