    Patna, Mar 27: A special Central Bureau of Investigations (CBI) court on Saturday, Mar 27 awarded life sentences to the three convicted killers of National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) engineer Satyendranath Dubey.

    The three accused Mantu Kumar, Udai Kumar and Pinku Ravidas were convicted by the court on Monday, Mar 22 for murdering Dubey in 2003.

    While Mantu Kumar was convicted under Indian Penal Code (IPC) Section 302 (Murder), 394 (Voluntary causing hurt in committing robbery) and Section 27 (A) of the Arms Act for possessing an unlicensed weapon, the other two were convicted under Section 302/34 (Murder committed in furtherance of common intention) and 394 IPC.

    Dubey was shot dead in Nov 2003 in front of the Gaya Circuit House after he wrote a letter to the former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee revealing the financial and contractual irregularities in a NHAI project.
