The Supreme Court has dismissed a criminal appeal filed by a man accused of murdering his sister-in-law and her mother and sentenced him to life imprisonment.

Ramasubramanian on Friday dismissed the criminal appeal filed by Naresh Kumar against the Uttarakhand High Court order which had dismissed his appeal against his trial court conviction order, cancelled his bail bonds and ordered him to be taken into custody.
