In this case, the verdict was adjourned after all the arguments in the aforementioned murder case. Following this, Kumbakonam fast track court judge Benjamin Joseph pronounced the verdict today. According to the verdict, Raja has been sentenced to death.

 The court also sentenced Raja's accomplices including his uncle Arumugam and brother Selvam to life imprisonment.
