A court in Muzaffarnagar district of Uttar Pradesh on Monday sentenced a man to life imprisonment in an attempt to murder case.

The convict, Shahnawaz, is currently serving a life sentence in a separate case of murder.

Additional district sessions judge Shakti Singh sentenced Shahnawaz to life imprisonment in the attempt to murder case and also imposed a fine of Rs 50,000 on him.

According to the prosecution, Shahnawaz had attacked two prisoners — Jameel and his son Sarfaraz — with a sharp-edged weapon in a police vehicle when they were being taken from the district jail to a court for hearing in June 2011.

Jameel and Sarfaraz suffered injuries in the attack. A case was lodged against Shahnawaz at the Civil Lines police station, charging him with attempt to murder.
