SC acts tough, asks 92-year-old honour killing convict to surrender

News Agencies | Updated on: 17 June 2016, 15:21 IST

The Supreme Court on Friday refused to entertain the plea of a 92-year-old convict in an honour killing case, asking him to surrender before the police.

Putti, a resident of Unnao district of Uttar Pradesh, was convicted in the case dating back to 1980 by a trial court and was awarded the life sentence two years later.

He challenged the order in Allahabad High Court, which upheld the trial court's order earlier this year after a 34-year-long wait.

Putti, however, refused to budge and approached the apex court seeking leniency on grounds of his advanced age.

Two other convicts in the case died during trial.
