Man gets life term for stabbing dad 22 times with sickle in Mumbai


Mumbai, October 23: A 22-year-old man, Mayank Kumawat was sentenced to life imprisonment and a fine of Rs 10,000 by the Vasai court for murdering his father back in 2014.

Sources said, Mayank had committed the crime because he was unable to bear the everyday assaults his father, Mukesh (49), inflicted on his mother.

On April 12, 2014, Mayank stabbed his father 22 times with a sickle. Advocate, Ujwala Moholkar, said, “Mayank’s building’s security guard was the initial witness. Later, his mother, the only eye witness to the case, confirmed the murder.”
