A court here has awarded life imprisonment to a youth for murdering a poultry farm owner.

According to prosecution, labourer Anees, 27, of Vadakku Nullivilai under Eraniel police station limits had developed enmity with poultry farm owner Michael, 42, of the same area.

Following a scuffle between them, the police arrested Michael.

When Michael was enlarged on bail on April 30 last year, mysterious fire broke out in the house of Anees, who suspected that it was the handiwork of Michael. Anees, with the help of his friends Satish and Karthik, hacked Michael to death on the same day.

District Principal Sessions Judge Karuppaiah, while acquitting Satish and Karthik, awarded life imprisonment to Anees and slapped a fine of Rs. 2,000 on him on Friday.
