Life for the husband who killed his wife who did not pay for the chain … iCourt confirms!
The petition came up for hearing in a session comprising Justices BN Prakash and AA Nakkeeran. At that time, the Tamil Nadu government protested that the first class could not be given, claiming that it was prohibited under Tamil Nadu prison rules to give first class to a person involved in a crime.

The judges, however, closed the petition, recommending that the state grant him first class in prison as the petitioner was a doctor and the appeal against the death sentence was still pending.
