Corruption Case: SC reduced the sentence considering the old age of accused


Preeminent Court has decreased the sentence of a charged who was indicted for defilement. The case is titled as KALIYAPERUMAL versus THE STATE OF TAMIL NADU settled on 27.01.2020.
Incomparable Court watched and held as under:
“This intrigue emerges out of the reproved Judgment and Order dated 30.11.2018 passed by the High Court of Judicature of Madras at Chennai in Crl. Request (MD) No. 210/2011, by which the High Court has confirmed the sentence forced by the preliminary court on the appealing party for a long time, alongside fine of Rs.2500/ – under Section 7 of the Prevention of Corruption Act and for a long time alongside fine of Rs. 2500/ – under Section 13(1)(d) r/w 13(2) of the Act.
Both the sentences to run simultaneously. We are not happy with the contentions raised by the appealing party on the benefits of the case, and consequently, are not slanted to meddle with the denounced Judgment and Order.
Be that as it may, in the impossible to miss realities and conditions of the case, thinking about the age of the appealing party as 75 years, we lessen the sentence of detainment to the base which can be forced, for example, one year. The fine sum is kept up. The sentence is altered in like manner. The intrigue is permitted to the previously mentioned degree”.
