BANGALORE: In connection with a double murder case which took place in 2007, the Second Fast Track Court has found three accused, including a woman, guilty. The quantum of their punishment will be pronounced on Thursday. The convicted persons are V Vindhya, 29, of Gudiyattam in Tamil Nadu, her husband R Surendra, 33, of Vellore in Tamil Nadu and Kaftan Khan, 32, of Ajmer in Rajasthan. They had murdered Pushpa, 37, and her daughter Hemalatha, 12, by slitting their throats in Srirampuram and had escaped with cash and gold ornaments, on January 3, 2007. Pushpa was running a beauty parlour.

Vindhya reportedly visited the parlour frequently and had learnt that Pushpa had gold jewels. The former had conspired with her husband to kill Pushpa and make away with her jewels. On January 3 night, Vindhya went to Pushpa’s house and offered her sweets saying that it was her birthday. Sedatives were mixed in the sweets and they were consumed by the victims. After that, the duo fell unconscious and Vindhya called up Surendra and Khan, who killed the duo by slitting their throats and escaped with gold jewels, the police said.
