A local court on Tuesday framed charges against four accused in the case of death of youngsters Keenan Santos and Reuben Fernandez while fighting eve-teasers in Mumbai [ Images ] last year.
The court framed charges against the accused for murder, conspiracy and molestation.
The trial will begin next month. Keenan, 24, and Reuben, 29, were stabbed after a scuffle near a shop in suburban Andheri on October 20 last year. The duo was attacked, leading to their death, when they tried to protect their female friends from the group of eve-teasers. Police had later arrested Jitendra Rana, Sunil Bodh, Satish Dulhaj and Dipak Tival for the murder. Following a public outcry, the case was transferred to the fast track court in Sewri in March.
