Mangalore, Dec 12: The fourth additional district and sessions court has concluded investigation in three criminal cases against Mohan Kumar, who is accused of killing several young womans by giving cyanide to them. The court will announce its verdict for December 17.

The investigation regarding with the murder of Bantwal’s Anita, Sullia’s Sunanda and Vamadapadav’s Leela was over on November 30 and the verdict was to be out on December 9. It has now been postponed to December 17. The hearing with regard to Barimar’s Anita, Vamadapadav resident Leela and Sullia Peraje’s Sunanda began first. The missing case of Anita led to revelation of the series of murders by Mohan Kumar.

The initial questioning had commenced on November 21, 2011 in the then fast track court and it had continued for about a year. Besides these three cases, questioning in cases concerning Bantwal Kariangala Sanaribettu Shashikala, Bantwal Edkidu resident Hema alias Hemavati, Melina Maladi’s Yashoda, Puttur survey village Padumajalu resident Vinutha, Bajpe Gudabettu resident Sujatha and Kasargod Mangalpade resident Kamala who was staying in her sister’s house in Thokottu and going to work from there was also started by the fast track court.

The cases were then transferred to Mangalore’s fourth additional district and sessions court this year.

This is the first verdict coming out in the case. Mohan Kumar is accused of killing 21 girls by cyanide. The verdict coming out in the first three cases is likely to influence the remaining cases against him.
