Nagpur, July 13 (ANI): All six Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) activists who were accused in the H S Sabharwal murder case were acquitted by a sessions court here today.
In its verdict, the court said it was acquitting all ABVP activists as the prosecution had failed to prove their involvement in the murder.
According to the lawyer of the accused, the court further noted that the prosecution had failed to file conclusive evidence to prove that the six were present at the murder site.
Professor. Sabharwal, the head of the political science department of Ujjain's Madhav College, died on August 26 2006 from lung and rib injuries after being beaten up by ABVP activists.
He was trying to convince students about the need for postponing the college union elections. (ANI)
