Additional Sessions Judge Manisha Khurana Kakkar presided over the case of Jitender Badhana, Ravi, Mohammed Ifrahim, Yusuf, and Bobby, who were convicted in December 2023. The proceedings against Vikas alias Boga were abated in January 2023 after his death during the trial.

Public prosecutor Paryag Dutt Pandey represented the state during the hearings.

As per the prosecution, the accused attacked Parmanand on November 5, 2011, causing him grievous injuries with the intent to commit dacoity. Parmanand succumbed to his injuries in the hospital the following month.

“The court found the convicts guilty of committing dacoity and murdering Parmanand, resulting in not only the loss of his companionship but also his family’s income,” the order stated.
