District and Sessions judge Mahesh Jadhav has awarded capital punishment to Sunil on Thursday for murdering his mother and then ripping her body open and removed her organs.
This shocking incident sent shock waves amongst general people in 2017.
The 35-year-old man received the death penalty under the conviction of being his mother's assassin.
The heinous murder involved tearing the body of the 62-year-old mother apart and extracting her organs.
During the trial, the case was termed as an act of cannibalism as when the accused was held, his mother's organs were found on the kitchen platform with salt, oil and chilli powder, while his mouth had blood.
The incident took place on August 28, 2017, at Makadwala Vasahat in Kolhapur city, informed Public prosecutor Vivek Shukla.
"Kuchikorvi was a drunkard. On the day of the incident, he had asked his mother for some money for buying liquor, and when she refused, he hacked her to death using some sharp weapons. The accused then ripped the right side of her body and removed heart, kidney, intestines and other organs and placed them on the kitchen platform," Shukla said.
About 12 witnesses were questioned in the case.
