Reversing the judgment of a trial court, the Bombay High Court on Thursday acquitted Ravindra Kantrole alias 'beer man', the alleged serial killer, in a 2007 murder case.
The division bench of Justices Bilal Nazki and A R Joshi acquitted Kantrole in the last murder case after he had filed an appeal in the High Court. In this case, Kantrole was charged with killing a man sleeping on a pavement on the foot-over bridge near Metro cinema in south Mumbai on January 11, 2007. However, Kantrole's lawyers had argued that the two eye witnesses produced by the prosecution were "bogus".
