A local court today awarded death sentence to six people in the 2013 Sonai honour killing case in which three Dalit youths were killed in Ahmednagar district.

Judge R R Vaishnav sentenced the six to death and also slapped a fine of Rs 20,000 each on them for killing the Dalit youths, Special Public Prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam told reporters here.

The three youths were brutally killed in Sonai village on January 1, 2013, and their mutilated body parts were found in a septic tank.

The six were convicted on various charges including murder and criminal conspiracy for killing Sachin Gharu (24), Sandeep Thanvar (25) and Rahul Kandare (20).
