A 23-year-old Indian-origin man stopped a police officer on the street and remarked that he was sentenced to life by a UK court for brutal murder in order to implicate himself in an attack on his teammate.
In March, Jugukumar Sorthi was sentenced to a minimum of 28 years before he was tried for parole after being found guilty of killing 21-year-old Bhavini Praveen, who was stabbed at his home in Leicester city.
Justice Timothy Spencer told Jigukumar Sorathi while sentencing at Leicester Crown Court on Wednesday, “It was a horrific, cruel and merciless murder. You just killed a beautiful, talented young woman of 21 years.”
During a murder trial earlier this month, the jury heard how he felt by Bhavini Praveen that he had scrapped his wedding ceremony plans.
On March 2 at around 12.30 pm, Jigukumar Sorthy went to his house and stabbed him several times before Jigkumar Sorathi spoke for a few minutes and left the property.
Leicestershire Police and East Midlands Ambulance Service personnel were called to the address where the victim was pronounced dead.
Less than two hours after the incident, Jigukumar Sorathi approached an officer outside the Spinney Hill police station in Leicester and stabbed Bhavini Praveen and entered to entrap himself.
A post mortem examination was conducted and it was concluded that Bhavini Praveen died due to multiple stab wounds.
“Bhavini was a young woman with the rest of her life to carry on. She was a gentle caring soul and came from a close and very private family. It is fair to say that she is the apple of her parents’ eyes Thea. “Said Detective Inspector Kenny Henry, senior investigative officer for the East Midlands Special Operations Unit Major Crime Team.
“Losing Bhavani so early in life and under such tragic circumstances has continued to take its toll on her parents and brothers – her life has been changed forever. Losing your beloved daughter to someone like that Given, whom they trust to take care of them that they are something. They should never get over it, ”he said, adding that the sentence would bring some relief to his family.
“It was very difficult for the family to be present during the trial and I should admire their bravery, courage and respect. Nothing will bring back Bhavini, but I can only hope that the results today, in no time , Knowing this will bring some relief. ” He said his daughter’s life was over.
According to local ‘Leicester Mercury’ reports, Jigukumar Sorathi had a civil ceremony with Bhavini Praveen in India in 2017 and was followed in England on a spous visa in August 2018.
However, the couple lived at different addresses and no out of the match work seemed to be going on.
Bhavini Praveen was supposed to marry Jigukumar Sorathi at a religious Hindu wedding ceremony, but his family shut it down the day before the murder.
Bhavini Praveen had a brutal, vile attack in her own house. Lucy Boulter of the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) said, the defendant took the knife to her home and still tried to claim that she was not in control of her actions.
“We produced compelling evidence, which showed the court that this was clearly planned and pre-determined,” she said.
When he handed himself over to the police, Jeevakumar Sorathi alleged that Bhavini Praveen ruined his life.
His lawyer told the court that his client struggled to face life in the UK during court proceedings, which was translated into Gujarati for his benefit.
