Submitted by alvin on Fri, 2016-06-17 17:51 New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday refused to entertain the plea of a 92-year-old convict in anhonour killing case, asking him to surrender before the police.Putti, a resident of Unnao district of Uttar Pradesh, was convicted in the case dating back to 1980 by a trial court and was awarded life sentence two years later.He challenged the order in Allahabad High Court, which upheld the trial court's order earlier this year after a 34-year-long wait.Putti, however, refused to budge and approached the apex court seeking leniency on the ground of his advanced age.Two other convicts in the case died during trial.
