Sessions judge M.W. Chandwani, who on Friday awarded three-year jail to Kannada actor Maria Susairaj and 10-year imprisonment to her fiancé Emile Jerome in the TV executive Neeraj Grover murder case, also imposed a fine of Rs. 1.50 lakh on them.
“Nothing can replace a son for parents in their old age,” the judge observed.
Earlier, Maria's lawyer Sharif Sheikh told the court here: “She is not a habitual offender. She is a lady of young age, unmarried. All these things should be considered while deciding the quantum.” He said she was a helpless woman who was forced to abet in the offence due to a threat to her life.
Earlier, public prosecutor R.V. Kini pointed to the gravity of the offence. Considering the active part played by Maria in destroying evidence and the manner in which the crime took place in May 2008, she should be given the maximum sentence of seven years and should also be made to pay fine.
While arguing for a heavy quantum of sentence to Jerome, Mr. Kini said he, given his naval background, could have easily overpowered Grover. There was no need to kill him.
According to Maria's confession, Mr. Kini said, she asked Jerome to call in a doctor after he stabbed Grover repeatedly. But Jerome said Grover would not die for the next four-five hours. “If he did not have the intention to kill and then chop the body, why did he say that the doctor was not needed? Was the provocation so severe?”
But Jerome's lawyer, Khan Abdul Wahab, said the former naval officer did not have the intention of killing anyone. “I did not join any international firm that I should make money. I joined the defence with the noble purpose of serving the nation,” Mr. Wahab said on behalf of Jerome.

During the whole of her trail she never appeared have any form of qualms, regrets or repentance of what she has done along with her fiance, Emile Jerome: the way the ruthless murder was committed, the way it was cut into 300 pieces, carried to remote places to burn!
