Karnataka: Court to pronounce judgement in Bhaskar Shetty murder case on June 8 | Mangaluru News – Times of India

UDUPI: The principal district and sessions court in Karnataka’s Udupi district will pronounce judgement in the sensational Bhasker Shetty murder case on June 8.
The court on Monday asked two accused – Rajeshwari Shetty the wife of the deceased and Raghavendra, their driver to be present on the said date.
While adjourning the court, sessions judge Subramanya J N also directed the defence counsels and special public prosecutor to be present before the court.
Bhaskar, an NRI industrialist, was allegedly murdered on July 28, 2016 at his Udupi residence and his body was burnt in a homa kunda in an alleged attempt to destroy evidence.
The accused had dumped the remains that included ashes and bones in three rivulets.
Eventually, his burnt bones led the cops to the accused. The DNA samples of the bones had matched with the blood samples of Gulabi Shetty, mother of Bhaskar Shetty, establishing evidence that it was the latter’s body.
The prosecution commenced the final arguments in the case through senior counsel and special public prosecutor M Shantharam Shetty in March.
The court observed that due to the pandemic and the lockdown Rajeshwari and Raghavendra were absent on Monday.
The court felt that the judgement should be pronounced in the presence of everyone involved in the case.
The court also directed the concerned jailer to produce Shetty’s son Navaneet and their astrologer friend Niranjan Bhat through video conferencing.
