The 3-member bench sentenced 7 suspects to death over the murder of 18-year-old schoolgirl Shivaloganathan Vidya in Punkudithivu, Kaytes in Jaffna.

There were 9 suspects in this case and 2 of them were released by the bench.

The bench included Vavuniya High Court Judge Balendran Sashi Mahendran, Jaffna High Court Judge Ilancheliyan Manickavasagar and Trincomalee High Court Judge Annalingam Premashankar.

The verdict was delivered by High Court Judge Balendran Sashi Mahendran and, Jaffna High Court Judge Manickavasagar Ilancheliyan.

They were also ordered to pay fines between Rs. 40,000 to 75,000.
