Charges framed in Keenan-Reuben murder case

Last updated on: October 23, 2012 17:31 IST

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 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.
