The Thiruvananthapuram Principal Sessions Court on Thursday found four persons guilty in the sensational Kannadi Shaji murder case.
Ambalamukku Krishnakumar, Sanish, Jayalal and Syam are those who were found guilty in the case. The court, however, dropped charges against eight other accused in the case as the prosecution failed to prove the charges against them.
Judge B Sudheendrakumar will pronounce the sentence on Friday. Twelve persons were listed as accused in the charge sheet. Apart from the four found guilty, the eight others are Premachandran, Sankar Ram, Alan Raj, Binu S Nair alias Kudukka Binu, Anand Lal, Suresh Kumar, Krishnendu and Anjaneyan.
The incident happened on November 12, 2011 when Kannadi Shaji, who was also a notorious gangster, was waylaid and killed at Chithra Nagar at Kowdiar here, where he was residing. He was travelling along with his accomplice Ajith Kumar on a two-wheeler when the gang attacked them. The murder was allegedly committed in retaliation for the murder of two other gangsters, Kokkode Syam and his accomplice Praveen.
