Four persons including a former village head have been sentenced to life imprisonment by a court here in a three-year-old double murder case.

Additional government counsel Misqin Ali said that Sriram Nishad and his brother Chunnu belonging to Chatchatgan village were going on their motorcycle on November 2, 2013 when they were shot dead by attackers and their faces crushed over old enmity.

A chargesheet was filed against four persons — former ‘gram pradhan’ Vishambhar Nishad, Ram Prakash Nishad, Ramraj Nishad and Rambabu Nishad, he said.

After hearing both the sides, Additional District and Sessions Judge Sajay Singh Thursday sent all the four to life imprisonment besides imposing a fine of Rs 10,000 on each of them.
