Serving Life Term In A 2001 Murder Case Saravana Bhavan Owner Passes Away

Saravana Bhavan owner P. Rajagopal, convicted by the Supreme Court in a 2001 Murder case, has passed away at a private hospital in Chennai today (July 18, 2019).

On July 9, 2019, he surrendered to serve life term after the Supreme Court turned down his plea to extend time on health reasons to surrender to serve the life sentence.

The Bench of Justices Ramana, Shantanagoudar and Indira Banerjee in March 2019 had upheld the life imprisonment sentence earlier awarded to Rajagopal by the Madras High Court for murdering an employee in October 2001 to marry his wife.

The apex court granted him time till July 7, 2019, to surrender before the police or a court. However, before the deadline, he got himself admitted to a hospital in Chennai citing health reasons and failed to surrender on the deadline.
