Muzaffarnagar: A local court in Shamli district has sentenced two men to life imprisonment for a double murder in 2011.
Additional District Sessions Judge D C Singh last evening sentenced Virendra and Anangpal to jail for life for the murder of Sudhir and Shiv Kumar.
A fine of Rs 15,000 each was imposed on the both convicts.
The court has acquitted five other accused in the case due to lack of evidence.
According to government lawyer Jitender Tyagi, Virendra and Anangpal were pressurising Sudhir and Shiv Kumar to withdraw the case lodged against them for murdering their relative Narendra.
As Sudhir and Shiv did not agree, the duo killed them in Bajheri village of Shamli district on May 30, 2011.
