NEW DELHI: A Delhi court on Wednesday convicted five accused in Delhi journalist Saumya Vishwanathan murder case. All the accused have also been convicted under MCOCA.
On September 30, 2008, Vishwanathan was shot dead on the Nelson Mandela Marg while returning home from work in her car.
Five individuals – Ravi Kapoor, Amit Shukla, Baljeet Malik, Ajay Kumar, and Ajay Sethi – were arrested in connection with the murder and have been in custody since March 2009.

Additional Sessions Judge Ravindra Kumar Pandey of the Saket Court had reserved his judgement on October 13. He had given time for additional arguments or clarifications since both the defence and prosecution completed their arguments earlier this month.
The police had attributed the motive for her killing to robbery, and had invoked the stringent Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) against the accused.
