The verdict in the Keenan-Reuben murder case has been deferred. A local court here, which was expected to deliver the judgement on Monday, adjourned the case to May 5.
“All that I want is a good judgment, nothing less than life imprisonment until death,” said Keenan’s father Valerian Santos.
24-year-old Keenan and 29-year-old Reuben were stabbed after a scuffle near a paan shop in Amboli, Andheri (W) on October 20, 2011 when they protested against the harassment of their female companions.
While Keenan died soon after the incident, Reuben died on October 30, 2011 in a hospital in Andheri.
The police arrested four accused — Jitendra Rana, Sunil Bodh, Satish Dulhaj and Dipak Tival — in the case and had filed a 416-page chargesheet.
The court had framed charges against the accused for murder, conspiracy and molestation.
