SC awards life term to two for killing a man over conversion

 The Supreme Court has awarded life imprisonment to two youths for killing a Muslim man after he married two Hindu girls who later converted to Islam.

A bench of justices F M I Kalifulla and U U Lalit convicted the accused after relying on the prosecution's theory that conversion was behind the killing and the accused had threatened to kill Sultan Meeran, a resident of Coimbatore, after he married a Hindu girl who converted to Islam. 

The accused — Kamal and his friend — had warned Sultan that he would be killed if he converted other girls as his act was creating "danger for Hindu religion". A month after being threatened, Sultan married another Hindu girl and she too adopted Islam. Enraged over the conversion, Kamal and his friend stabbed Sultan to death while he was partying in a club in 2003. 2015
