The accused – Anthati Shekar – had developed one-sided love for Divya and was jealous of her growing closeness with another classmate.

On September 19, 2010, Shekar invited Divya to his house for a party. He checked her messages and questioned her about her friendship with other classmates.

“Shekar could not control his anger and hit Divya with a baseball hat on her head. She sustained severe bleeding injuries ultimately leading to her death,” a police press release said.

Shekar was finally arrested during the course of the investigation. On Thursday, he was convicted of life imprisonment sentence and a fine of Rs 50,000/-
