A Ranchi court Thursday convicted a man for beheading a woman inside a college campus here last April. The quantum of sentence will be pronounced April 30.
Welcoming the conviction, the victim's father Maheshwarnath said: "He should be awarded death sentence so that no such incident is repeated in the future."
Bijendra, an engineering student from Jamshedpur, had allegedly attacked Khushboo with a sharp-edged weapon when she was coming out of a classroom after an exam at St. Xavier's College here. He was caught by the students present.
The victim was a resident of Tupudana in Ranchi but had met Bijendra in Jamshedpur while she was living with her grandmother. Bijendra expressed his love for Khushboo but she turned him down and shifted to Ranchi.
