Two get life sentence for actress’ murder

Mumbai: A Mumbai Sessions Court on Friday sentenced to life imprisonment two Bollywood junior artistes for the gruesome killing of Nepali-origin aspiring actress-cum-model Meenakshi Thapa, a law officer said.

“Sessions Judge S.G. Shete found them guilty on three main counts of kidnapping, extortion and murder of Thapa and sentenced them to life imprisonment,” Special Public Prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam told the media.

Earlier on Wednesday, Judge Shete found Amit Kumar Jaiswal, 40 and his girlfriend Preeti Surin, 36, guilty of killing the 27-year-old actress in Uttar Pradesh in 2012.
